Milton Creamery Flory's Truckle
Milton Creamery worked hand-in-hand with the Flory Family of Jamesport, Missouri to develop this aged clothbound cheddar, earning its unique name. In the traditional style, this cheese ages with the cheesecloth left on the outside, allowing the cheese to breathe and resulting in the appealing dry, crumbly texture. The cheese is allowed to dry for ten days and is then coated with lard (!) and aged twelve months. What comes to fruition is a cheddar with an unparalleled peppery aroma and a rich grassy flavor. The dense and crystallized paste needs something juicy to go along with it - keep that in mind and lay out a spread of plums and pale ale to pair.
