An English blue cheese, which is made from the whole milk of cows and aged from several months to five months and longer. While it is being aged, it is pierced several times with stainless steel needles to encourage the growth of mold, which creates the blue-green veins running throughout the yellow interior surrounded by a crusty rind. Stilton is rich and creamy but a little crumbly, with a light tangy nutty flavor that becomes stronger and more flavorful with age. It is a highly valued cheese for its superior flavor that goes well with Port wines. This cheese is also available as a Gloucester-Stilton combination with the Gloucester cheese layered over and alternating with inner layers of Stilton blue cheese. The flavors of both cheeses complement each other to provide a distinctive tasting appetizer or dessert cheese. Stilton cheese is also available as a white cheese that is a younger version of Stilton blue without the blue mold veining. It is used as an ingredient for salads or as a good table cheese.
