Mossfield Organic

Mossfield Organic is a mild creamy cheddar type cheese made by Ralph Haslam of Mossfield Organic Farm, Co. Offaly, Ireland. It is a cooked, pressed cow's milk cheese sold at various stages of maturation; six, nine or twelve months. Along with plain version, Mossfield Organic is also sold infused with herbs, basil, cumin and tomatoes. When young, the cheese is fresh, lactic and mild. But with age it becomes drier and crystalline with an intense tangy aftertaste and nutty aftertaste. Accompany the cheese with a red wine such as Shiraz.
