Making Cheese

Here’s the cheese making part of the Beecher Dairy Store on the corner of Pike Street in Seattle, right across from the entrance to the famous Market. Beecher cheeses are sold in the Whole Food Markets and the Harmon Brothers Food Stores right here in Utah. They are delicious! So naturally I wanted to take a picture during our recent visit to Seattle!

Hey! That one turned out better than I thought it would! So I decided to get a little closer up (the cheese making kitchen is sealed off from the public) with the zoom lens.

Beecher's Cheese

That contraption goes up and down the length of the tub and agitates it similar to those old fashioned butter churns you have to turn by handle. The cheese looks fairly thick here, but in person you could see the little bits of cheese beginning to solidify as the “batter” was churned. Aren’t they beautiful! (I think I’ll go have a grilled cheese for lunch now.) Hooray! I think I mastered this multiple photo blog posting through! If you enjoy cheese, I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did!

      Ha ha! You can tell I am one food starved woman, can’t you? Wait’ll see the market pictures sometime later. I am turned on to fresh vegetables, fruits, and flowers, I tell you. I’m just going to do what I feel like and call it my wintersong. I’m having fun with flickr.

  1. And you went to Seattle too? Gosh, where have “I” been?
    This looks wonderful! I love cheese and it looks like a cheese spa to me……..Wonder if the French make their cheese this way? Possibly I’ll find out in October.

  2. That is the best cheese and it’s so much fun to go there. Love reading about things you saw in Seattle. I’ll be there in August.

      mmh, you DO have a connection with Seattle don’t you? A daughter I believe? All the time I was there I was wracking my brain trying to remember who I knew in the blogosphere that had connections to Seattle. You kept coming to mind; also later learned another blogger friend of mine has a son there. Lucky both of you. Seattle is a neat place to visit! I’ll be posting several more things about it as time goes on. Thanks for stopping by.

It's always nice to know what you're thinking...
