Raclette Taste Test


Hello Everyone,

Today we opened up the Raclette cheese and tried it. The taste was quite strong, but very good. But...the same issue, it didn't melt!

I have a question. Do you check the ph of your cheeses when making them? Some cheese refuse to melt if they are too acidic or alkaline. Also, the water in the cheese might be too low and the cheese won't melt. Yes, if the water molecules are not given room in a too dense cheese the cheese won't melt like feta cheese. Try looking into these to items.

Thanks Leanna :) I do have PH strips. I had a PH meter but it wasn't working so I had to return it, I'm not sure how well the strips work either, but I don't know at what point to check the PH levels and what levels they need to be to go on to the next step. All of the home cheese making recipe books don't talk about PH except for Mozzarella cheese. I've asked that question to the lady whose book I read, I hope she is able to advise me on that!

The cheese does look very professional! I'm impressed just by how great your cheese come out. And I'm so fascinated by the whole process. I never realized how much goes into making cheese.

Thanks Martha :) It looks good, tastes good, but dang it won't melt!!! I think I didn't realize how much went into the cheese making when I started, I was so overstressed back then with Stella and Pavlov staying with us that I couldn't put as much mental energy into it. Now though, I'm determined!!! I have to find out why it's not melting it's driving me batty lol...

I'm sorry that your Raclette didn't melt, Rain! I enjoyed the video, and I got a kick out of seeing Jack by your side, and I think, Marlene walking by. You'll figure it out eventually!

Thanks Louise :) It's frustrating for sure. If I can figure this out I think that I'll have a major celebration! :)
