One of the best things about doing this website, is hearing comments from my readers. Recently, someone commented on a post I wrote about Colby cheese. I thought that aged Colby is something that does not exist, but he pointed out to me that is actually does. So after some searching I found a company in Wisconsin (Bass Lake Cheese Factory) that sells an aged Colby. One of the reasons why I believed Colby wasn’t sold aged, was because it would be too dry. The Aged Colby I had was definitely drier than a young Colby. It has a crumbly texture. But that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t deserve a place on the market. Although sometimes you can’t tell the difference between Colby and Cheddar in the store block brand cheeses, there truly is a taste difference. I think that an Aged Colby would make a fine replacement for a sharp cheddar in a macaroni & cheese recipe.
