A type of English cheese that at one time was made only with the milk from Gloucester cows, which are now almost extinct. There are two types of Gloucester cheese: Single and Double. The main difference is that Single Gloucester is made with skim milk combined with a small amount of whole milk and Double Gloucester is made from whole milk. Both types have a natural rind and a hard texture, but Single Gloucester is more crumbly, lighter in texture and lower in fat. Single Gloucester has a milder flavor than Double and is a bit easier to break apart. It is not allowed to age for as long a period as Double. Both types are produced in round shapes, but Single Gloucester rounds are smaller. Single Gloucester can be enjoyed as a snack or for grating or grilling.
