Face Rock Monterey Jack

Face Rock takes twice as long as big cheese companies to make its Monterey Jack. Why? We don’t want our cheese to ever fit in the commodity cheese mold, so we skip the shortcuts and enjoy the long road to quality. Our cheese is made from Oregon milk that has a higher fat content than can be found in co-op milk. The result is smooth meltability, a rich texture, and more flavor.
How It's Made
Monterey Jack is a “Stirred Curd” cheese. As opposed to cheddar, Jack curds are stirred from beginning to end and never get any larger than the size of a pea. The curds bathe in whey to develop the classic Jack flavor before being washed with water to give the cheese more moisture. A second resting period, which many cheesemakers skip, allows our cheese to achieve a richer Jack flavor.
 
Flavor Profile
Our Monterey Jack is a semi-firm, sweet, creamy, mild American Classic. This Jack is high in moisture which makes it perfect for melting and cooking.
 
What to Pair it With
Firm and flavorful crisp apples, grapes, Bing cherries and Anjou pears won’t overwhelm this more subtle cheese. Dried fruit like apricots and cranberries, and lightly salted nuts enhance Jack’s sweetness, while hot peppers complement the creamy Jack texture.
