transformation of liquid to semi-solid
a little disturbing yet fascinating
a scientist would love it
to me it is art

Are you really making cheese? If it’s not that I’m not sure what else it is I might be looking at. Nevertheless, it’s a very fine looking agglomeration of something. Art? Yes, but I’m relieved to know you didn’t put it on the scanner bed.
Susan, I’ve never tried making cheese – does it look like this? I’m tempted to keep this a secret a bit longer but I’ll be good and tell you – it is thick cream that went sour and curdled in coffee. I’ve never seen it make this kind of pattern! Oh, and it still tasted okay.
No scanner used in this
Amazing coincidence: the other day I cut something that looked just like this off the bottom of a red cabbage which had been lurking at the back of my vegetable drawer. I did not photograph it unfortunately.
Oh, I can imagine the bottom of red cabbage looking rather like this! Might have worked well on the scanner…
I’ve never seen curdles like these. You must get superior cream to get these effects!
Is that the reason? It is a fabulous local organic full fat cream, ie. whipping cream. Even when seemingly sour it tasted sweet.
For a second I thought it a strange sea creature…
Marly, I agree it looks like some strange and perhaps rather scary creature in the photo. I almost hesitated posting it in case I’d turn readers off! But you know how intrigued I can become about natural phenomena…or just plain weird stuff!
