Monterey jack recipe

Monterey Jack is an American semi-hard cheese made using cow’s milk. It is commonly sold by itself, or mixed with Colby to make a marbled cheese known as Colby-Jack (or Co-Jack)

Monterey Jack cheese has a high moisture content, melts easily, and has a bland, buttery flavour.

In its earliest form, Monterey Jack was made by the Mexican Franciscan friars of Monterey, California, during the 1800s. California businessman David Jack first began to mass market the cheese. He produced a mild, white cheese, which came to be known as “Jack’s Cheese”, and eventually “Monterey Jack”.
