Level of difficulty: simple.
The Jim score: 2, to be polite. It was pointless.
It was with trepidation that I started this challenge. There was a lot of ‘Oh Dave, what are you doing to me? Why would I make processed cheese? This sounds a bit too chemically and sciencey for me. I just like good solid meal’. But THEN I thought ‘well I suppose I am meant to be doing something that I wouldn’t normally do. That IS the point of this blog’. So after a bit of confusion, I ordered my digital scales, got the ingredients and set myself up whilst visiting The Ma. I used this recipe to start with but used the cheese I had, rather than following the recipe to the letter. Also, because I was dubious about the challenge, I halved the ingredients.
So. Here we go.
120g Edam grated
75g Comte grated
4g Salt (though I think this should have been 2g – whoops)
12g Sodium citrate
Dave, I’m afraid this one is not one that’s passed the test – it might be my failings to give it a proper go – I’m sure it could be better but I just don’t feel my heart it in it. Give me another please.
