FEATURED CHEESE OF THE MONTH
A TASTE OF FALL THAT LEAVES YOUR TASTE BUDS REJOICING ALL YEAR!
In 2013, Peppercorn Harvest was developed as our 1st Seasonal Cheddar and is now one of our most popular. This cheese takes unique all natural ingredients and extra time to bring its ideal flavors from farm to table. It’s Fall! And it’s time to get those taste buds going with all the special creations we love to see and experience!
HOW IT’S MADE
Classic white cheddar curds are mixed with red and green peppercorns and pressed into cheese molds and aged to create 40lb blocks of Peppercorn Cheddar.
Smooth cheddar with a pleasant crunch of peppercorns that release a burst of savory-sweet pepper flavor into each bite. More earthy than spicy, this cheese has a “cheddary” bite, savory harvest flavor, and leaves the palate with a hint of sweetness.
WHAT TO PAIR IT WITH
Peppercorn Harvest is the perfect accompaniment with many dishes. Choose flavors with warm earthiness and subtle sweetness to bring out the best in this cheddar.
Roasted nuts, toasted pumpkin seeds, olive tapenade, cranberry chutney, dried apricots, quince, crispy crackers & crunchy artisan bread.
Wines: Think smooth and mellow. Oak, blackberry, and currant flavors make the peppercorn flavor pop!
Dry Chenin Blancs, Gewürztraminers, & Rieslings, Chardonnay, Merlot, Malbec, and Pinot Noir.
Beers: Kolsch, Hard Cider, Pumpkin Brews, Red & Brown Ales, Lagers, Porters & Stouts
A taste of the Fall that will leave your taste buds rejoicing all year round. Peppercorn Harvest has the perfect blend of a savory bite and a hint of sweetness from dried peppercorns. This cheese combines our wonderful aged cheddar with the balance of red and green peppercorns.
Our 12 Month Aged Cheddar is creamy with a slight nutty flavor. It is a medium cheddar, full of creamy, cheddary flavor~ yet without the bite you’ll find in the sharper versions. Low in moisture, our Cheddar is great on its own or with your favorite foods.
