DOUBLE GLOUSTER. ENGLAND. 1/2 LB

A close cousin of Cheshire and one of Britain‘s most popular cheeses, Double Gloucester is an ideal sandwich cheese, adding creaminess without an over-powering flavor. "Double" refers to the traditional recipe that uses milk from both morning and evening milkings. Double Gloucester was traditionally made as a large wheel with a thick rind to withstand annual cheese rolling ceremonies—when cheeses were rolled down the hills in Gloucestershire to protect the grazing rights. It was originally colored with carrot juice or saffron. These days cheesemakers use annatto vegetable dye to enhance its naturally golden color. Double Gloucester has a silky, buttery texture. It ripens for three to four months for a mellow flavor. Made in England.
