We have over 100 words for cheese.

"To access articles please login or create an account" Not just no but hell no.

I live in Wisconsin.  I'm guessing it's the whey that they use?  There's plenty of salt in it which I would think melts ice just fine. We also use beet juice!

No.  Whey has some salt but mostly protein.  They use the brine, which is straight-up salt water.  When making medium to hard cheeses, the newly pressed cheeses are soaked in a strong salt solution -  that helps the cheese form its protective outer layer and also gain a little more salt to regulate the culture.

Males sense that they would re-purpose it.

This is being used close to my (next to Milwaukee) town. The streets they used this on are actually more driveable than my town for the same traffic. It deals with cost.

After the hunt, Wisconsinites bury the hearts of their prey on the plains in the belief that it will please the Casein spirits who will then favor the next hunt...

Oh what a friend we have in cheeses.
 
2013-12-28 02:21:42 PM
They do this in Wichita, KS. That is use a salt brine, but I don't think it comes from the cheese making process.
 
2013-12-28 02:24:07 PM
so what do I do now with the wrapper the cheese comes in?  I usually keep them around a few days just for the smells.

As of now I am enjoying an world class blended cow/sheep/goat cheese from Carr Valley.

In Wisconsin no meal is complete without cheese. Also, we haven't found a food yet that we don't eat either in a cheese sauce or that has cheese in it; sometimes both. Mmmmmm cheese and beer......

It's normal to have four different styles on hand totaling about 12 pounds, including the back-up cheese in the downstairs freezer, right?

Duh. I've got at least 12 pounds of Widmer's brick alone in the freezer.

Whey is used in other foods like making ricotta cheese.  They have been talking of using the beet juice and brine here as well.  But then again, they are also pulling the rug out from under the DPW guys who do most of the plowing and replacing them with low paid drivers.

Well, I've heard of cheese balls before. But that's about it. Wait, I forgot about cheese doodles. But I'm a bit unclear as to which part is actually the doodle.

I'm not sure myself, but apparently Howlin' Wolf, Koko Taylor, and Little Walter can pitch a wang dang doodle all night long. Maybe it's a black thing... like the blues. MMMM, blues cheese.

I have to wonder - wouldn't beet juice stain the hell out of people's shoes and clothes?

You can't smell anything when it is that cold anyway.

Since they are talking about beets from beer making process, it could be sugar beets which are not red.  I am not sure where it has been tried around here, but I haven't heard of any red streets.  Sugar beets are commonly grown up here.
