Well , here we are , at 2 months old , Saturday morning and I was just dying for some of this Stilton on my home made bread toasted.
It has been wrapped in Cheese Paper for the last month in the regular refrigerator , it is perfect , but again , somewhat like a Cambozola , I guess due to the PC and b Linens (it seems all my blues turn out this way).
I was expecting it to be a little more firm and crumbly , like a blue cheddar , most of the Stiltons I have bought are like that.
It is a mild blue flavor with a texture that is somewhat creamy , even spreadable if warmed up.
The rind is great if you're not afraid of eating real ugly things.
Just a hint of ammonia which dissipates after being opened up for a few minutes , just the right amount of salt.
I'm calling it a success , 9 1/2 out of ten , even the wife likes it.
I am now looking for another cheese cave , my current one is full , hope to find something right away so I can keep making more.
Cheers , Jim.
