About this item
In true Italian form, when multiple milk types are available, they are all put to use. Cottonseed embodies the practice of blending milks to showcase the favorable attributes each variety has to offer. Goat milk offers nutty and savory, yet inherently spring-y qualities, while cow milk mellows and lengthens flavors with an always-welcome addition of butteriness. The blended milk, turned curd, is all contained and ripened by a downy coat of P. Candidum, contributing notes of fresh mushroom and sea salt minerality.
For seasonal fun, Boxcarr cheesemakers have taken their Cottonseed recipe and added annatto for color and and a dusting of ash for spooky-ness. This cheese is a delicious way to ghoul all out for Halloween.
Try pairing with a sparkling cider, white wine, or Lambrusco.
Whole cheese approx. 12 oz.
