Missouri Cheese – The making of cheese dates back as far as the beginning of time apparently. Nobody really knows when the process took form, but it is suspected that the process of making cheese was accidentally discovered from the practice of storing milk in containers made from the stomachs of animals. In this scenario, rennin, an enzyme in stomach lining caused the milk to separate into curds and whey.
Another possible explanation for the discovery of cheese stems from the practice of salting curdled milk for preservation purposes.
Regardless, of the origins, it is clear that by the time that Julius Cesar appeared on the scene, literally hundreds of varieties of cheeses were produced and traded.
Thankfully, the process has improved. Nonetheless, Missouri has some world renowned cheese makers. We have listed a few and will be reviewing each of them to provide you with some additional information.
