Our Monterey Jack is a semi-firm, sweet, creamy, mild American Classic. This Jack is high in moisture, which means it's PERFECT for melting, cooking, and baking!
We don't want our cheese to ever fit in the commodity cheese mold, so we skip the shortcuts and enjoy the long road to quality. Our cheese is made from Oregon milk that has a higher fat content than can be found in co-op milk. The result is smooth meltability, a rich texture, and more flavor.
Net Wt. 8 oz
How It's Made
Monterey Jack is a "Stirred Curd" cheese. Different than cheddar, Jack curds are stirred from beginning to end and never get any larger than the size of a pea. The curds bathe in whey to develop the classic Jack flavor before being washed with water to add more moisture and remove any excess lactic acid. This makes for a more mild taste and adds moisture to the cheese. After a second resting period, which many cheesemakers skip, our cheese achieves a rich classic Jack flavor.
Firm & flavorful crisp apples, grapes, Bing cherries won't overwhelm this subtle cheese. Dried fruit like apricots and cranberries, and lightly salted nuts enhance Jack's sweetness, while hot peppers complement the creamy Jack texture.
