Celebrating 10 Years on eBay. A look at our Feedback from the Last 10 Years

Wow, it's been 10 years already! A quick fact you may not have known is that GoldenAgeCheese.com was the first company to sell cheese on eBay. Yes many year's ago Golden Age Cheese started with just one or two "dutch" auctions, which back then was how you'd list multiple items on eBay.com. Today there are a ton of different ways to list multiple items, and the "dutch" auction is almost outdated. We started by selling our cheddar cheese curds and New York extra sharp cheddar. Our sales started out slow, but we gave it the time and it grew into something great. Today we have an eBay cheese store with most of our cheeses offered. We became an eBay member on July 12, 1999 and just celebrated our 10th anniversary. We always want to hear feedback from our customers, and eBay has always served as one of the best methods of receiving it from our online shoppers.

Like Really Sharp Cheddar Cheese? Just Released from the Reserve: Jurassic Sharp

We now offer a cheddar cheese which has been aged 7 to 8 years. As always we wanted to be unique, so instead of naming it like the ones we've all already heard of for sharp cheddar cheeses, like: Extra sharp, XX sharp, XXX sharp, 5X sharp, Razor Sharp, Dangerously Sharp... You get the point, we named it Jurassic Sharp. This was thought of about a week ago, when a customer sampled this cheese in our retail store and said "that cheddar is so sharp it makes me wonder if it has been in the reserve when dinosaurs were around". The creative minds at Golden Age Cheese took note of this and the name Jurassic Sharp was born. This is the oldest cheese we currently have available for sale and we have an extremely limited supply available. This is available on our Cheddar page at: GoldenAgeCheese.com.

Do you like this name? Please comment.

How to Stretch Fresh Mozzarella from Mozzarella Stretching Curd

Ever wonder how to get fresh mouth watering Mozzarella? It is easier than you think, and available all year around from GoldenAgeCheese.com. All you need is Mozzarella curd cheese, and these simple instructions detailed below. We make the mozzarella cheese daily and ship it within 24 hours, so you know you are getting the freshest cheese we have available! Fresh Mozzarella from Mozzarella Curd is catching on nationwide, as millions of people are learning the art of stretching fresh Mozzarella. The steps are easy to follow and the process may take 15 minutes or less, the reward however is great! The step and instructions are listed first, and the image of that step is listed below it.


Begin by putting Mozzarella curd into a large mixing bowl, and cut the mozzarella curd into small pieces.


Next heat the water to 140-150 degrees and pour it gently over the small pieces of curd.


Now let the curd sit in the hot water until it is soft enough to start forming back together. Perform this step using a large knife or spoon to gently mass the softened curd back to one solid piece.


If the water is not too hot and the curd has formed into one solid piece, start to stretch it by letting the curd stretch downward with its own weight (you may want to wear rubber gloves to protect you from heat). It's important to stretch it very gently so you will not lose too much butterfat.


Continue by letting the cheese fall and stretch with its own weight, and then fold the Mozzarella back over itself. Repeat this process until the cheese has a smooth surface.


Depending on how you would like to serve your Mozzarella; form the cheese into a smooth ball, or spread the cheese evenly into a flat square piece.


If stretching into Mozzarella ball(s), then immediately place mozzarella into ice water (let it sit in the water for five to ten minutes). After the cheese has been cooled down properly, the cheese is ready to be refrigerated or served!

**Sprinkle salt into ice water to meet desired taste preference**


If stretching the Mozzarella into a flat square piece to make a meat & cheese roll, place your favorite deli meats on the flat piece and roll tightly. Once the cheese is rolled tightly wrap it in cellophane and refrigerate (for at least ten to twenty minutes). Once cheese has been cooled properly, it is ready to be served.

**Lightly sprinkle salt onto flat piece of cheese to meet desired taste preference**


Serve the freshly stretched mozzarella by itself or however desired. Try it with fresh tomatoes, basil, and oregano, complimented by drizzling olive oil lightly over top; an Italian Specialty. ENJOY!


This will make some of the freshest Mozzarella cheese you'll ever taste - guaranteed!
