I love Cheese! Especially blue cheese

$58.00

If you love a creamy blue Old Windmill Dairy takes the prize. Their Manzano blue moon is 4 to 6 oz wheel of blue cheese. Unlike most blues the mold grows on the rind leaving a bright white center. Manzano Blue Moon was the dairies first blue Ribbon cheese which was earned at the American Goat Dairy Association. Sandia Sunrise Smoke Gouda is a Hickory smoked Goat Milk Gouda that took 5th place at the United States Champion Cheese Contest. It scored was 99.45 just 2 tenths of a point from first place. You ask why not first place? The judges said the “texture and taste were great,” but the wheel of cheese was lop sided. It was like being at the olympics, they grade on everything.  McIntosh use to be called McIntosh Cheddar. For years Old Windmill dairy was trying to make a goat cheddar, however, what they discovered was a unique blend of mild flavors…cheddar and manchego. This cheese is best served at warm temperature so the flavors will come through and please your pallet. The Traditional Brie is similar to a French brie with it silky creamy paste and delightful rind.
The cheeses are shipped in our handsome tote that is great for a lunch pack or a six pack. The tote is insulated featured with a handle and two dry pockets.

Product Description

manzanobluemoon    One half pound of our sensational semi hard goat cheeses along with a 5 to 6oz wedge/wheel of cow/goat milk blue cheese. McIntosh cave aged goat cheese has a taste profile of a mild cheddar to Manchego. It is nutty, buttery with a hint of mild cheddar to manchego flavor. It is a great compliment to Sandia Sunrise Smoked Gouda, another award winning goat cheese. New Mexico Blue Cheese maybe eaten one bite at a time. If you like a cambazola this is very similar, it has a fudge like texture that is rich and deep (The Manazano blue moond, a featured goat milk blue is rich and ranges from a crumbly to a creamy blue). New Mexico Blue is one of the best cow milk blue cheeses, says  Jonathan Gutierrez from Santa Fe Cheese Mongers, has ever had.

Taking Care of your Cheese

These cheeses are best stored in the refrigerator. Plastic wrap the cheese tightly to keep the air off as they can dry out or grow mold. If you have a vacu seal this works best for resealing the cheese and storing them in the refrigerator. The blue cheese is best stored in the paper in came in or a paper towel then covered with wax paper.

Pairings
If you are doing a beer or wine pairing, these cheeses will make an awesome choice.

McIntosh – best served with an IPA (it really cuts back on the hoppy flavor of the beer. When combined the beer enhances the cheese flavor. As for wine we recommend a fruity champaign or a Sauvignon with a grapefruit subtlety, like Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc.

Sandia Sunrise Smoked Gouda – pairs nicely with a stout or a red ale. I suggest topping a french onion soup or a grilled portabello mushroom and a slice of beef steak tomatoe.

Both cheeses make a great Mac & Cheese, Grilled Cheese Sandwich or top a nice toasty bread.

Manzano Blue Moon- deserves a stout beer, or cab wine. We recommend pairing it with rippend pair, cranberries and walnuts. While it is young it maybe very mild and crumbly. As it ripened it develops a deeper rich robust blue flavor that has a silky brie texture.

McIntosh 1/2 lb. $18.00
