Nixon-era cheese to sell for $10 an ounce

Edward Zahn discovered blocks of cheese up to 40 years old at the back of his cheese shop's cooler.

The cheese was stored in wooden boxes that had been unintelligently overlooked, allowing it to age by several decades. Ken McNulty purchased 20 pounds of the cheddar and now intends to sell it to consumers by the ounce. "Because thereís so little, we didnít want to sell blocks of it on the Web," he said. "We just wanted people to sample it."

But what does it taste like ? "If you get a piece close to the outside, itís all crystallization, so itís crunchy like Corn Flakes," said McNulty. "As you get closer to the interior, itís creamier and overwhelmingly sharp."

"A recently discovered block of eastern Wisconsin cheddar cheese that dates back to the Nixon presidency will be sold for $10 per ounce."

Mmmmm, I bet it would make a great grill cheese with my homemade bread. If y'all want to buy the cheese I'll do the cooking.

I would savor this cheese as an eating cheese. Accompanied by some other goodies too.

"eating cheese" what do you do with other cheeses? Eating cheese, as in eaten on it's own rather than using it as an ingredient. I would serve it in "taste" sized bits, likely along with other eating cheeses. Probably a few other little dishes. Of course a couple of beverages. Sort of an amuse-bouche. Sometimes in some restaurants you will see a dessert type of dish offered that is a couple of different bits of cheese, often accompanied by fruit, nuts, or chocolate. Those are eating cheeses. An eating comparison could be grapes. Table grapes are more for eating- particularly fresh, wine grapes... [More]
