Two great tastes that taste great together... and just in time for Thanksgiving, too. For this month's Cheese of the Month, we bring you our Blaser's Natural Cranberry Muenster.
Yes, our award winning Muenster cheese, made semi-soft from fresh whole milk produced by our patron farm families throughout eastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin, combined with our state's other popular export, cranberries. The mild, mellow flavor of the Muenster, the sweet tartness of the cranberries... delicious!
A beautiful and unique cheese for the holiday cheese plate, you’ll find this interesting flavor combination can also be served in a variety of other ways. Here're a few of our favorites:
... Grated over caramelized onions and smoked deli turkey between slices of grilled sourdough. Yum! Serve with a dollop of Dijon mustard for dipping for gourmet the easy way.
... Wrapped in a tortilla, or between slices of your favorite whole grain bread, this cheese takes your leftover turkey roll-up, sandwich or ho-hum Club from good to great!
... Toss a few cubes, along with smoked turkey or grilled chicken, atop a bed of romaine or spring greens. A few fresh tomatoes, a little shaved red onion with a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette and you’ve got a satisfying, light and oh, so delicious lunch.
Trust us, this is sure to be a new favorite and with the holiday season upon us, you'll want to be well-stocked. As always, you’ll find this cheese and many
more Wisconsin varieties at our Ellsworth
