It's incredible!  Just before ... what are we calling it?  Lock down?  Quarantine?  Anyway, I was lucky enough to snag a little Stilton and on a whim picked up some Shropshire Blue. It was really good, creamier than Stilton but still had a great sharp tang n' bite.  Turns out it may have been created a guy who was trained in making Stilton.

Good. Maybe the price might come down a bit. Just bought myself a wedge yesterday from TJs. Lovely taste. Even had it as my dinner last night.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stilton​_​cheese
Daniel Defoe in his 1724 work A tour thro' the whole island of Great Britain notes, "We pass'd Stilton, a town famous for cheese, which is call'd our English Parmesan, and is brought to table with the mites or maggots round it, so thick, that they bring a spoon with them for you to eat the mites with, as you do the cheese."[9]

In Denmark I have bought it. Came in blue jars.

The price, 10-15 times Danish blue cheese. Hard to justify, but, good.

Does Trader Joe's sell Danish blue cheese? Happy to give it a try.

I like Stilton even though it is a bit pricey. Oddly enough, I think it goes very well with a type of commercial crcker called "Bacon Dippers", which allegedly taste something like bacon but go very well with the unctuous and rich taste of Stilton.

I guess that is my own private guilty pleasure because I imagine very few people have had the King of Blue Cheese with $1.99-$2.99 bacon crackers. It is like that time I bought the movie Seventh Seal (Stilton in movie form with Morons from Outer Space (bacon crackers in movie form).

What the Hell, I am a mess of contradictions. Like Walt Whitman said, I contradict myself? Very well, I contradict myself. I am large, I contain multitudes.

I dare you to try Stilton, with and without bacon dippers. It will be a revelation either way.

Now I must add Stilton to my shopping list, behind Kiwis and New Zealand lamb. And potatoes, of course. Lots of chips. The best ones are cut and deep-fried at home. I have a crinkle cutter for just such a continengency, but you can use it on carrots and cucumbers if you want something healthier, or even zucchini.

Dunno. In Denmark they do.

Here they go by their real name, Aldi.

Is it unpasteurized?

My personal recipe, triscuits, cucumber, blue cheese and a little sprig of dill.
