Turophile Terms – O

Hey there, Turophiles!  Hope everyone had a relaxing weekend.  Now it’s time to get back at it!  Here is your “O” edition of Turophile Terms!

Oily is a cheese description that can refer to flavor or appearance.  When most cheeses are left out of refrigeration for too long, especially harder Goudas, they will develop an oily coating.

When a cheese is overripe, it is past the point of its ideal flavor.  In some cheeses you will be able to tell by the consistency (soft cheeses will be too soft), while in others you will be able to tell by flavor.  This doesn’t mean that your cheese has gone bad, however it is an indicator that it is on its way out and should be consumed sooner than later!

Mozzarella Ovoline are small 4-ounce balls of fresh Mozzarella, usually packed in water.

Study up, Turophiles, because next week’s “P” lesson is going to be a long one!
