Abstract Auf der offenen Feuerstelle in einer Almhütte erhitzt die Bäuerin Milch in einem großen Kupferkessel, der an einem Schwenkarm hängt. Durch Zugabe von Labpulver und Salz wird die Milch zum Gerinnen gebracht. Nach Abschöpfen des Käsewassers wird die Käsemasse in eine Holzform gefüllt, festgedrückt und mit Steinen beschwert. Bevor die überstehenden Ränder des fertigen Käses abgeschnitten werden, wird er mit Salz eingerieben.
On an Alpine farm in St. Magdalena (South Tyrol) the farmer's wife makes cheese: She pours milk into a large copper vessel hanging on a turning arm over the hearth and heats it. As rennet she uses a powder mixed water and a pinch of salt. She stirs the milk continuously and watches the temperature. At 40-50°C she adds two thirds of the rennet and reduces the heat. After a certain time she breaks the curdled milk with a whisk and adds the remaining rennet. Finally she skims the whey and packs the curd into the mould, placing on the lid stones to press the cheese. - Salt is rubbed into the surfaces of the shaped young cheese, overlapping edges are cut, and the cheese is stored in a cheese-room.
