Stilton is probably my favorite blue cheese, and I’ve liked other versions of white stilton with fruits. This one, however, is plain amazing. I was afraid that the ginger would be too strong, specially against what is, when devoid of its mold, a rather subtle cheese, but it’s perfectly caramelized into barely spicy sweetness. This cheese is just delicious, dessert with a capital “D”. Best of all, it’s available right now at the Grocery Outlet in San Leandro for only $3 or so for the 5oz package.
It’s the real Clawson stilton, imported from England, and it has an expiration of July 2014. As with other soft cheeses, it’s creamier as it warms up in room temperature. This one is a bit chalky when cold.
