Description:
Pasteurised prime summer pasture milk is used to produce England’s only name-protected cheese. The pastures are established on top of coal fields that have high iron content and this is said to create Stilton’s unique flavours. Naturally occurring bacteria in the milk, aided by the air that enters through the process of needling, helps to create the blue mould. The cheese should be crumbly yet firm enough to cut. Stilton has a dry brown rough rind around a creamy ivory paste with liberal blueing that spreads all the way to the edges.

This cheese is full, rich and creamy with complex flavours of honey, leather, tobacco and molasses. The aroma is huge and spicy; the rind is edible and very pungent. Keep in the original cheese paper or hold in foil - not plastic directly on the rind as it tends to make the rind of blue cheeses sweat.
