Holy Cow! First Cheesemakers Date Back 7,500 Years
Live Science ^ | December 12, 2012 | Charles Choi

Posted on 12/13/2012 1:20:19 PM PST by Diana in Wisconsin

The first direct signs of cheesemaking now seen in potsherds from Poland may help reveal how animal milk dramatically shaped the genetics of Europe, scientists reported today (Dec. 12).

Although cheese may just seem to be a topping on pizza or a companion to wine, it may have shaped the evolution of Europeans, researchers say.

Moose burgers came before cheese.

My sister told me so; she was bitten by a moose once.

What’s the old FR meme (so old, it was before the word ‘meme’ was invented) about cheese? “A moose once bit my cheese”?

Due to the ‘Unionista Agitation’ at our beloved Capitol these past eight two years (they’re still at it, but even our LEFTIST Media is sick to DEATH of them, LOL!), our VICTORIOUS recall election of our REPUBLICAN Governor and ENDLESS political tension in our state, more ‘feel good cheese stories’ are just what we need! :)

I think it’s ‘A Moose once bit my sister.’ And ‘hugh’ (huge) and ‘series’ (serious) was another.

And the classic, ‘Stunned my Beeber.’ Or was it ‘Stuned?’

How I miss the good old days! Nothing like a daily ZOT to keep you full of hopey-changey Hope for America! *SMIRK*

I know about my sister (may she rot!) but there was something about cheese and not about cheese and whine, just cheese, and it wasn’t about taking a shower while eating cheese.

I grew up in inner-city Milwaukee, WI and we were VERY poor. My folks had me young and we were all living with my Mom’s parents to keep us afloat. Mom worked as ‘Mary Secretary’ and Grandma took care of me while Dad was doing his Apprenticeships (plumbing, electrical, etc.) for about 25-cents an hour.

We were eligible for Free Government Cheese - and Day-um, if my Grandma didn’t make THE best baked Mac-N-Cheese on the PLANET out of that stuff!

I’ve never been able to duplicate that recipe - even with crushed Lays Potato Chips on top, LOL!

(I miss you Grandma, to this day, even twenty-seven years after...) *SNIF*

In my book, Cheese = LOVE :)

I no longer make cheese but did for over 20 years, all from fresh goats milk. I made many different kinds from soft to hard cheese. Making cheese is a labor of love and I do miss it. Cheesemakers were the first preppers.
