We now live in a society whose greatest value has become productivity. We get our news from short sound bites from the internet or TV now instead of reading the paper. We rarely read books anymore. We listen to them while we are stuck in traffic trying to get to work so we can get as much done in as little time as possible. The products we buy are made with the same goal in mind: maximum efficiency. But those who produce the few products that we still make in the U.S. whose ultimate goal is maximum efficiency seem to have lost their standard of quality. They make it fast but what happened to the concept of taking your time and doing it right? Some things just cannot be made fast without sacrificing quality. One of those products is cheese. Mass produced cheeses all seem to have the same "tinny" metallic taste.
The milk is pasteurized to prevent the introduction of any foreign bacteria. The cheese is now made in stainless steel vats as they are easier to clean and more sanitary than the old copper kettles. The enzymes that are introduced to form the cheese curds are now more carefully measured to ensure the highest quality. No chemical preservatives are added but the individual pieces of cheese are vacuum packed and refrigerated after the aging process is complete to ensure the cheese stays fresh until it makes its way to your table. All of this ensures an unmatched standard of quality. Most Amish made cheeses have a cream content level of up to 33% milk fat which is high compared to mass-produced cheeses but that s what makes them so creamy and full flavored. The cheeses are refrigerated during storage but are best served at room temperature.
There are over 50 flavors of cheese that are made in Ohio s Amish country. The most notable are Amish Swiss Sharp Swiss Baby Swiss Amish Butter Cheese Colby Farmers Cheese Jack Cheese Marble (Colby Jack) and Yogurt Cheese. They also produce numerous variations of each including smoked varieties and cheeses infused with peppers onions and bacon to name a few. A byproduct of the cheese making process is also butterfat which is used to make Amish Butter the best butter most will ever taste. But the Amish level of patience and dedication does not only apply to dairy products. Their religion discourages them from worldly pursuits so their ultimate goal in everything they do is perfection rather than profit.
