Stinky Cheese Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

Yes, I’m a lazy little man, not putting up any pictures again.  And terse descriptions, too?  I know that y’all are going to be writing me off soon.

On to the cheese!

Today we had Ski Queen Gjetost again.  I brought it in last June and made a lot of friends with it so I decided that it was a good time to re-introduce it to my coworkers.  Gjetost is made from the whey instead of the curds, and boiled to caramelize the lactose giving it a sweet flavor and a brownish color.  It is delightful!

I also brought in Kerrygold Skellig for St. Patrick’s Day.  Well, I didn’t really need an excuse to bring in something from Kerrygold, but there you have it.  Their Skellig cheese is a slightly sweet Cheddar that just sings to your taste buds.  Even with the popularity of the Gjetost, Skellig ended up getting the most compliments by far.  Props to Pastor Barb for finding this one on a cruise and bringing back the recommendation!

Lastly I brought in Tillamook Sharp Cheddar out of Wisconsin.  As far as cheddars go, this one is fairly good.  No surprises, just good, solid cheddar with a bit of sharpness to it.

Stay Cheesy!
