Print Recipe
Dry Jack Cheese is made with a longer cook and stir time to dry out the curds, then it is pressed in a cloth without cheese molds. Once formed, a spicy surface rub with cocoa, pepper, coffee, and oil is applied to the surface while aging. This process creates a spectacular presentation and a yummy cheese.
