Wisconsin Might Use Cheese On Roads In Winter.

Well cheese “brine”, so it’s kind of different. And actually smart too. Brine is the leftover water after the cheese making process is over. It usually is just disposed of. It’s waste. Now it can help keep Milwaukee’s roads safe.

This story from the Chicago Tribune explains “Milwaukee wants to use cheese brine on icy roads”

“Cheese brine is a salt and water solution commonly used in the making of Italian varieties such as mozzarella and Parmesan, said John Umhoefer, executive director of the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association. When it’s no longer suitable for soaking provolone, Umhoefer said the brine is usually discarded as industrial wastewater. “It’s a great recycling idea,” Umhoefer said. “What better to put on your roads than the scent of mozzarella?”

I couldn’t agree more. Might have to visit to smell that.
