Asher Blue Cheese has a unique natural rind and creamy-crumbly texture. This blue has slightly pungent, mushroomy aromas and earthy, grassy flavors with an unexpectedly mild, salty finish.
This Sweet Grass Dairy's raw cow's milk cheese has been recognized domestically and internationally with multiple awards. Like all blue cheeses, it is inoculated with the mold and then pierced 50 times on each side in order to get oxygen inside the cheese to let the mold grow during the aging process.
Gourmet Asher Blue has a milder and more approachable flavor than that of stronger blues. Don't be fooled by the color of the paste of this cheese; it often looks brownish, and dried close to the rind; that's flavor in the making.
We hand-cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces and you can purchase an entire wheel of approx. 6 pounds.
Ingredients:unpasteurized grass-based cow's milk, cultures, traditional rennet, sea salt, penicillium roqueforti.
