On Sunday I bought Spicy Mustang Cheddar cheese made by Cal Poly Creamery at Spencer’s Fresh Market in Morro Bay. Priced at $8.99 per pound, this is 10% less than the Creamery itself charges. Also available were Gouda, Smoked Gouda, Mustang Cheddar, Smoked Cheddar, Chipotle Jack, and Monterey Jack.
Spicy Mustang Cheddar doesn’t seem to be listed on the creamery’s website.
However, a SLO cognoscenti commended me today on my purchase saying this was the best of the portfolio. Spiked with chipotle chile pepper, the rich and buttery cheddar has a pleasant tang rather than sharpness that balances the heat well. Nice as a snacking cheese and good for melting too. I suspect that some of it will find its way into a pumpkin gratin for T-Day.
