Hello
We have 6 milk goats all giving us lots of milk a day.  We have been making cheese and freezing it.  I would love to find a way to can it so we do not have to use as much power.  Anyone have a good canned cheese recipe?

That's a tough one.  The heat generated during canning will seperate the oil/milkfat from the rest of the mass, and I suspect the milk solids would curdle.

I'll poke around, see what I can find but I'm not hopeful.

Not canning, but:  feta, since it's stored in brine, lasts well.
Cheese was designed as a storage food and many last and improve for a very long time.
I'd learn about cheeses designed to be aged. I'm pretty sure goat milk, with a few tweaks, can be used for most cheeses.
I have no experience with pressure canning, but I assume the heat would destroy cheese.
