Yesterday, I went to an organic produce market that a local college hosts. I wandered around, picking up the usual onions, green beans, new potatoes, squash, tomatoes and peppers.
I saw that they also had meat (hormone free), and I purchased a huge beef round steak and a very nice sized chicken.
As I wandered along, I saw that they also had cheese. They had many different kinds available, and I was compelled (just because it LOOKED so good) to buy a big hunk of Havarti, a big hunk of white Colby (aged 60+ days), and a huge chunk of Gouda.
I don’t profess to be a cheese aficionado, but the Gouda cheese is absolutely WONDERFUL! It has the melt-in-your-mouth softness, the texture is very creamy, and the flavor is nothing short of lovely! The best I’ve ever had, actually.
The Colby is just as good, very smooth, with more ‘bite’ than the cheese you get in the grocery store.
The Havarti was excellent, also. It is very creamy and the flavor rivals that of anything you can find in the store.
The labels say these are ‘Natural Raw Milk Farmstead Cheese’. Unpasteurized.
I have found a new place to get ALL my cheeses, and that makes me VERY happy! I’ll have to stock up, because they close in the fall, and I WILL have to have a selection of cheeses to last through the winter!
Cheese is a wonderful thing. I just had to share.
