Rush Cheese


Soft cheese set in a rush box (9ins x 5ins), possibly similar to the French Broccio. (Moxon 1764)

Original Receipt in 'English Housewifry' by Elizabeth Moxon, 1764 (Moxon 1764)

61. The fine RUSH CHEESE.
Take one quart of cream, and put to it a gallon of new milk, pretty warm, adding a good spoonful of earning; stir in a little salt, and set it before the fire till it be cum'd; then put it into a vat in a cloth; after a day and night turn it out of the vat into a rush box nine inches in length and five in breadth. The rushes must be wash'd every time the cheese is turn'd.
