Vegetable Ash in Paste for Cheese - 2 oz
Ash helps rinds grow thicker and faster on mature goat cheese. It makes a beautiful ash line in aged goat cheeses but more importantly it allows other molds such as P. Candidum to thrive and create a sweeter surface. To create an aged goat cheese, you will need to add P. Candidum to your milk with a mold such as Choozit MM 100 then later on you will apply the ash on the surface of your cheese.
A rule to remember is to always apply ash with salt. A ratio of 1:5 (ash to salt ratio). They will usually develop a blue-gray, mottled rind, condensed, nutty texture and a strong creamy flavor.
