This cheese is for a special request for a friend. Pepper jack made using ghost peppers and Habanero infused salt. This cheese may need to have a warning on the package when opening. What is a ghost pepper you ask? for several years this pepper was rated as the hottest pepper in the world. It is rated as 400 times hotter the Tabasco sauce. I have a package of dried ones to use for this cheese. Only 2 peppers will be used. I like how the package warns that you need to use gloves to touch the peppers and prepare them. The is no chance that i would ever make this without gloves. I have sliced up spicy peppers without gloves before then rubbed my eyes, ugh it was not an experience I ever want to repeat.
Cheese curds were a little spicy when I put them into the mold to press, but not to bad. As it ages I am sure the heat will migrate out into the cheese.
