Tonight's update is in honor of the ugly stepchild - the Naked Valencay. I call it naked because I had to remove its outer coat. It's one of those cheesy science experiments from the previous over-humidified Valencays. For these ugly ducklings (pictured here), I pulled the skin off as it had started to slip and break down, and I was left with little white goat cheese truffles. They are smelling good (in cheese terms) and are firming up nicely. They should be ready for tasting this weekend. Time will tell if this little accident will either create something worth replicating or worth adding to the trash.
