Tasting Tuesdays are back and we have a several savory new cheeses for you to taste from Cypress Grove!
Midnight Moon: Aged six months or more, Midnight Moon is a blushing, ivory-colored cheese that’s nutty and brown buttery up front with a long caramel finish. As the cheese ages, protein crystals form and lend a slight crunch to the otherwise dense and smooth cheese. Serve with fig jam or add as a decadent addition to macaroni and cheese. Available by the 10# wheel.
Lamb Chopper: Aged three months, Lamb Chopper is Cypress Grove’s only sheep milk cheese. It has a buttery color and smooth texture. Pairs beautifully with sautéed mushrooms and polenta or shaved over a salad or pasta. Available by the 9# wheel.
Purple Haze: Chevre disc blended with lavender and hand-harvested wild fennel pollen makes Purple Haze an addictive cheese with a deliciously distinct flavor. Makes an excellent addition to cheese plates, stuffed into pitted Medjool dates, or crumbled on a salad. 12/4oz discs in a 3# case.
Humboldt Fog Haze Remix: The original Humboldt Fog remixed with a distinctive ribbon of lavender and hand-harvested wild fennel pollen. Other tasting notes include buttermilk and fresh cream complemented with floral notes, hints of herbs, and a clean citrus finish. Flavor intensifies as it matures. Available by the 3# wheel.
