June 4th is National Cheese Day! How are you going to be celebrating? Cheese has a long and storied history, with hundreds of popular types of cheese being developed throughout the world. Here are some interesting facts about cheese that you can think about next time you snack!
No One Knows When Cheese Making Began
Cheese making has existed for nearly as long as human history. Because of this, it’s difficult to say exactly when the process began or how it started. Humans likely began to make cheese when they domesticated milk-producing animals. It’s likely that cheese started out with sheep and began about 8,000 to 10,000 years ago.
Cheese Production Out Classes Coffee, Tobacco, Tea and Cocoa Beans
Cheese is one of the most popular products on the market, with cheese production being more than coffee, tobacco, tea, and cocoa beans combined. Unlike many of these other products, cheese is also made throughout the world rather than being centralized in specific areas. Everyone loves to make cheese!
Every Pound of Cheese Requires 10 Pounds of Milk
Want to make some cheese? You’re going to need a lot of milk. Milk reduces until it’s dense enough to create a good cheese. Of course, harder cheeses like parmesan may require more milk than a cheese like mozzarella. And you can even make your own cheese from mozzarella if you have some milk you need to use!
Mac and Cheese
It should be a surprise to no one that the most popular recipe for cheese is the staple mac and cheese. A popular side dish and main course, mac and cheese is popular among nearly all cultures and ages. Not only is it simple and easy to make but there are countless ways in which it can be improved upon and refined.
