Josh Pond’s Cave-Aged Meddybemps
Meddybemps is a hard, Alpine style cheese made with certified-organic raw cow's milk. The cheese is cave-aged on wooden boards for 6-12 months; during which time its rind is repeatedly washed and brushed to slowly develop a complexity of flavors which become more pronounced as the cheese ages. The tastes and aromas are typically reminiscent of roasted hazelnuts, butter, and vegetable broth with a whiff of freshly cut hay.
