This week's staff pick comes from our Dairy Stocker Allan! His choice is for this delicious mild cheddar from Milton Creamery called Prairie Breeze.
Prairie Breeze is a twist on a well-aged white cheddar style cheese, aged for a minimum of 9 months, made with vegetarian rennet and no added color.
It is sweeter than your typical cheddar with lots of flavor, crumbly yet creamy with a little crunch from the calcium crystals developed during the aging process. It’s nutty tones and fresh canned pineapple scent distinguish it from other cheddar and makes you want “just one more” bite of this unique cheese. It melts beautifully and is our most beloved and decorated cheese.
It is perfect on its own, in homemade mac and cheese or next to apple pie.
Allan says it's so good it's hard not to eat the whole block! He loves it served with our YFC Bakery Pumpernickel bread!
Find this cheese today in our new cheese cooler!
