Ashley – Mouco Cheese
This silky, smooth cheese is soft and mildly sweet, delighting your taste buds with a surprising combination of tartness and ooey-gooey deliciousness. As a finished product, Ashley draws its name from being covered in a fine layer of vegetable ash. Don’t worry, it’s edible! And oh-so good, too. A 4.4oz soft ripened cheese.
When Young: Buzzing with tartness, this young cheese has a light, stiff center while still aging.
As it ages: While ripening, a sweetness creeps in to compliment the tartness, while the pate becomes creamier in flavor and texture.
Fully Aged: Ashley is of age at 7 to 8 weeks, ripe, gooey and soft, while a definitive line indicates the edible rind. Complex with a hint of sweetness, the cheese hums with flavor and soul.
Ingredients: Cultured Pasteurized Whole Cow’s Milk, Salt, Enzymes, Mold Cultures, Calcium Chloride, Vegetable Ash.
