What is a truckle? In the old English language, a Truckle means cylinder shape. Traditionally, Old World cheddars are formed in truckles.
Milton Creamery worked hand-in-hand with the Flory Family of Jamesport, Missouri to develop this aged clothbound cheddar.
Instead of aging it in plastic, this cheese is aged with the cheesecloth left on the outside, allowed to dry for ten days, then coated with lard to minimize mold penetration, and aged for twelve months. The cloth allows the cheese to breathe resulting in a dry, crumbly texture.
What comes to fruition, this is a cheddar with an unparalleled sweet aroma, nutty taste and a rich grassy flavor.
It’s a must-have on any cheese board as it has the perfect balance of sweet, salt and tart that keeps you coming back for another bite.
