We just got in these great cheeses, just in time for the holidays! Jasper Hill Harbison is a bloomy-rind cows’ milk cheese that is woodsy, sweet and vegetal with bright, lactic flavors. The bark, cut from Jasper Hill Farm’s woodlands, holds the delicate cheese together, provides flavor to the creamy paste, and allows for an ideal presentation as the centerpiece of a cheese plate.
Alemar Sakatah is made with 100% grass-fed milk, is coated with a Geotrichum candidum rind and wrapped in brandy-soaked Marquette grape leaves from Chankaska Creek Ranch and Winery in Minnesota. The result is a buttery, mild cheese with a vegetal, eggy aroma and a créme fraiche and mushroom finish.
Nettle Meadow Sappy Ewe, made from a blend of sheep and cow’s milk, gets its ‘sappy’ moniker from its maple infusion and black coating of pine ash. Striking on a cheese plate, Sappy Ewe brings hints of sweet cream, button mushrooms, herbs and earth to the table. Its center is dense and slightly chalking, yielding with age.
