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 ages with the cheesecloth left on the outside, allowed to dry for ten days, then coated with lard to minimize mold penetration, and aged twelve month. The cloth allows the cheese to breathe resulting in a dry, crumbly texture.
This Missouri clothbound cheese compares to the elite, imported cheeses. Enjoy it with Friends and Family.
