Abi talked me in to buying the most wonderful cheese ever yesterday - Gjetost cheese. We had picked up Ski Queen brand from Vitamin Cottage. It's a caramel-y, rich, delicious cheese that is so tasty I swear I almost swooned when I bit in to it. It's like the crack of cheese. It's like cheese candy. You can't believe how nom this is!!!
:drool


I decided to look it up this morning and guess what I discovered? The main ingredient is LEFTOVER WHEY!!! And guess what? There are instructions right here!!!

neko, i missed your original post. until sunday i had never heard of it either. but now i can give a full report. NOM NOM NOM NOM

:gig

The funny thing is I gave hubby some and he was like "meh".
And I was like "Whaaaaa????? Are you insane???"

So then I banned him from having anymore because he did not properly appreciate the cheesy, caramely, fudgy-textured, creamy wonderousness that is Ski Queen cheese.

This is something I mentioned several weeks ago, but I got a rash of "I don't know" "I've never tried it" and "I don't like it" 's! I never DID get around to making it, as you need a ton of fresh, leftover whey, and lot's and lot's of time to make it. Do you want the recipe I've been eyeing? :p

It can be made from goats whey or cows whey, but the traditional way is the goats whey.
this is the beauty of forums...-- not everyone reads every post or is here every day. Things get missed.

Neko-Chan! Please post your recipe also! I love Gjetost!!!! Never considered that I could make it! Wonder if I could reduce it in my crockpot? Any guesses?

Ohhhh, I have almost a gallon of goat milk in my frig right now that I need to use. But I've never done cheese yet. So, I make some simple soft cheese or ricotta, and I'll have whey leftover?
