Our August #CheeseoftheMonth
Cheese in Colorado.
A unique take on Spanish-style #agedcheeses
, Gold Hill is a semi-firm, natural rind #goatsmilkcheese
Buttery, earthy and slightly tangy, Gold Hill possesses rich, full flavor with an incredibly smooth finish—use as a substitute for #Manchego
in your recipes or enjoy as a table cheese with #citrusyolives
and a full-bodied red or rosé. This Colorado beauty won both Super Gold and #BestAmericanCheese
at the 2017-18 #WorldCheeseAwards
Co-op Cheese Fact: When aging a cheese with a natural (or “wild”) rind, the #rind
is carefully monitored and brushed to ensure that only desirable microbes are established, and it is occasionally rubbed with oil, salt, and/or #brine
to regulate microbe growth and prevent cracking. Is it edible? It's up to you! The part of the cheese closest to the rind is typically the most flavorful, and many people enjoy the variety of texture that the rind offers.
From basic #creamcheese
to the more unusual nutty Swiss, decadent #camembert
or earthy blue, the salty, savory flavors of cheese are making their appearance in frozen treats across the world. Melt grated Gold Hill into a custard of egg yolks, sugar, milk and a pinch of salt before pouring the cooled mixture into an ice cream machine. The lightly tangy notes in Gold Hill provide a decadent but fresh foil for a baked #plumtart
