Morbier, France
AOC
pasteurized Cow

This semi-soft cow milk cheese has a distinctive line that runs through it's center. Made of vegetable ash, there is no taste associated with this marking, however, the cheese itself has a complexity of flavors. Withits pungent aroma,thetaste may seem surprisingly mild, though not tame by any means. Creamy on the palate, it has a nutty albeit bitter aftertaste.

Originally the layer below the ash was formed from leftover curdsof the eveningmilk that were not enough to make a complete wheel of cheese. Ash was then sprinkled over the layer to prevent a rind from forming. The next morning, milk from that day was poured over the ash to form the top layer.After settling, the cheese wash washed by hand to help form the rind.

Today, Morbier is usually made from one milking, but the ash remains to pay homage to the traditional means of it's making.
