Jasper Hill launches Blue Cheese into Space!!

How cool is this??? Jasper Hill launched Bayley Hazen Blue into space and back! VIDEO

We’ve all heard the moon is made out of cheese, and cows can jump over the moon. So launching cheese in a balloon into the upper atmosphere seemed the natural next step for a group of Vermont artisan cheesemakers.

“This is the launch of something big for us,” said Mateo Kehler, who along with his brothers, own the Cellars at Jasper Hill in Greensboro.

The brothers have big plans.

“I think it is pretty awesome, I got up early on a Sunday to watch cheese launch into space,” said Liz Thorpe from Brooklyn, New York.

On a sleepy summer day, folks gather on a Vermont hillside to launch three pounds of Bayley Hazen Blue cheese — into the blue. “It is a launch. We’re sending two pieces of Bayley Hazen Blue up over 100-thousand feet today,” Kehler said.

Ryan Nolin is the aviation consultant here. The Georgia-based balloon aerial photography hobbyist will follow every movement of the cheese. “Never done cheese before. I don’t think anyone has done cheese before. This is a first,” he said.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
