More cheese from the Pyrenees

The old and ......
Last May I made a second wheel of Pyrenees Pepper cheese but haven't actually tried it until a few days ago. Now it is 11 months old and I think it is my best cheese ever. It is very crumbly and has a fantastic flavour - of similar quality to a Mersey Valley cheese from Tasmania, an aged cheddar. It is a slightly strange colour as the peppers leach a bit of pinkish/purple colour. I was so pleased with the outcome that I set to and have made another wheel this weekend. It is now drying on a board for a few days before I wax it.

Also this weekend I picked my huge quince crop....6.....and so stewed them up with some apples and bottled them for another day.
