Benedictine is the color of cooked pasta and looks similar to Monterey jack. Its surface is a bit spongy and smooth to the touch. Out of refrigeration, this cheese clumps into a mass under pressure from a butter knife. Even with a soft cheese knife, Benedictine adheres to the knife blade, forcing one to peel cheese slices off the knife (not very elegant or hygienic).
