How to Make Parmesan Cheese (Italian Hard Cheese) at Home - WOW

The Parmigiano Reggiano or Parmesan cheese as it is called in English is considered to be among the top cheeses by cheese connoisseurs. It is usually made using skimmed or partially skimmed unpasteurised milk however in this instance, I have used partially skimmed pasteurised/homogenised milk as that was all I had available.
 
Cheeses imitating Parmigiano Reggiano (like this version I've made) are called as Parmesan or Italian hard cheese by producers to avoid legal issues. Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is named after the provinces in which it is made, namely Provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna and Mantua.

Annual pig feast time again. Have you tried cured "blown" pig liver, stuffed trotters and sausages?

This year, we butchered the annual pig in a hurry. My family and I worked till late night and managed to prepare all dishes for the lunar new year. We made not only hams, ribs, sausages, cured "blown" pig liver, but also stuffed trotters. Among all annual pig feast dishes, stuffed trotters require the most efforts. We will have to peel the skin of a trotter integrally to stuff lean meat inside, leaving no gaps at all. Then stitch the skin and tie with straw tightly to boil until cooked.
