stilton -

Stilton is a British country cheese made with pasteurized cow's milk and has a blue-textured texture due to the addition of mushrooms to the manufacturing process. Stilton cheese has a high cylindrical shape with thick, wrinkled and solid skin.

The color of the skin is grayish brown with white patches. The skin has very small holes that are the result of jabbing needles. The needle is inserted on the cheese shell so the air inside the cheese can come out.

The weight of this cheese ranges from 2.5 kilograms or 8 kilograms. Stilton was first popularized by the Bell Inn, an inn for tourists from London going to York. The young Stilton cheese is ivory and brittle. While the old Stilton cheese has a darker color and has a more prominent blue style.
