Sussex Slipcote refers to a traditional mild, soft cheese with a light, fresh creamy and very soft fluffy texture, a slightly sharp refreshing flavor and a sweet, refreshing citrus taste or a clean slightly sharp lemony taste. It is made with pasteurised sheep milk. It is a cheese suitable also for vegetarians. The name "Slipcote" is an old English word meaning little (slip) piece of cottage (cote) cheese. It was originally called Slipcote because the cheese curds used to mature too fast and the cheese would slip out of the cloth (or 'coat') it was in. Sussex Slipcote is made near Duddleswell in East Sussex. The cheese is made Plain or with the addition of Peppercorns, Herbs and Garlic, Basil or Mint in 100g buttons attractively packaged in clear containers or as a rolled log weighing about 500g. Sussex Slipcote is a spreadable cheese from England that goes well with crusty bread, biscuits, a jacket potato or stirred into pasta.
