Our Delicious Winnimere Is Back In Season!
Hill’s Winnimere is one
of the few soft, washed rind cheeses made in the United States made with
unpasteurized Ayrshire cow’s milk and is coveted whenever seasonally available.
That season has returned! Jasper Hill is currently experimenting with a
smaller format version of Winnimere. The wheels we will be selling will
be the size of Harbison and can be more easily retailed as a whole wheel.
pays homage to Vacherin Mont d’Or of the Jura Mountain region by using hay-fed
winter milk. The wheels are wrapped in strips of evergreen bark, washed in
brine and aged in Jasper Hill’s cellars for a period of 60 days. The indigenous
microflora present in the unpasteurized milk and aging cellars produces optimal
paste is wonderfully gooey and is best served when a bit of the rind is peeled
back and the interior is scooped with a spoon. When left to temper out of
refrigeration for about 30 minutes, you will begin to notice flavors of sweet
cream, bacon and spruce.
