I just came across this. I don't know if I would want to try and make it at home, though. Mommy's Milk Cheese
The whole idea of drinking from my wife kind of weirds me out, but it brings up some interesting questions. The natives of the Swiss Alps found that the cheese cured from cows that grazed on wild herbs had a strong aromatic flavor different than that of regular cheeses. Sooooooo... if i feed my wife a lot of butterscotch, will the cheese made from her Mommy Milk taste like candy? Or in the converse, if she eats a lot of junk-food will it taste like Fun-yuns? It's apparent that whatever she eats, my baby eats, so I can only imagine what flavor combination could be created.
Another point to make, if I decided to make cheese out of my Spouse's Milk, and assuming there is a surplus of milk so as not to steal from my daughter's mouth; is would I share it with people? I am not talking about a milk bank style donation to the needy. I'm talking about sharing with friends and family like a cheeseball at Christmas dinner. Would I be willing to look someone in the face that is ingesting something from my wife? I guess it takes a special kind of person to give it away like that. Images come to mind of the weird family on the side of the mountain that dry out their significant other's placentas to be used in some sort of witch-doctory. This kind of thing just doesn't happen in Western Society. I'm not sure I'm ok with it. Just because something can be done, doesn't necessarily mean it should.
