The Crocodile

The Crocodile is a classic monastic cheese, meaning that it belongs to the washed-rind, slightly pungent, family of cheeses, frequently made and sold by monasteries or abbeys using milk from their own herds of animals or from a neighbour. The cheeses also provide a welcome source of income. Made from pasteurized cow’s milk and washed in walnut liqueur. Aged for 30 days
