This small ball of cheese resembles a truffle, and it is intended to be used in much the same way.
The cheese is infused with garlic and coated liberally in palate-heating black pepper. Aged four months, it becomes hard and flaky, but has an incredible amount of flavor. Just a few shavings will make its presence known atop a salad, boiled potatoes, steak, or pasta.
Belper Knolle is very low moisture so it has a very long shelf life.
