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. Double Gloucester has a stronger and savorier flavor than Single and is a bit firmer. It is allowed to age for longer periods than Single. Both types are produced in round shapes, but Double Gloucester rounds are larger. Double Gloucester can be enjoyed as a snack or for grating or grilling.
