Cheese Chunks Adorn Ancient Mummies

Postby simonwheeler » Fri Mar 07, 2014 8:56 am

The world's oldest cheese has been found on the necks and chests of perfectly preserved mummies buried in China's desert sand.

Dating back as early as 1615 B.C., the lumps of yellowish organic material have provided direct evidence for the oldest known dairy fermentation method. The individuals were likely buried with the cheese so they could savor it in the afterlife.

As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

This theory is full of holes!

I hate cheese, I have never understood it - why would you eat something that you compare to old feet?

however, its very nice on pizza and with a strong complimentary flavour, like pickle…

life is full of such hypocracies….
