Autumn’s Apple & Cheese Pairings

Local apples and cheese are a perfect match! The sweet and tart flavors and crisp textures of the apples are set off by the sharp, salty, and nutty flavors and creamy texture of the cheeses.

-1- SweeTango Apple (equal parts sweet and tangy with hints of fall spices and vibrant acidity) + Jeff’s Select Gouda (a full-bodied flavor with a classic European nuttiness and a hint of caramel) 

-2- Honeycrisp Apple (juicy with a refreshing sweetness similar to fresh apple cider) + Bent River Camembert (as this cheese ages, the flavors will vary from mellow, mushroomy, milky, buttery, and subtle when it’s young)

-3- JonaFree Apple (sweet with balancing tartness, rich fruity flavors with hints of pineapple)  + Prairie Breeze Cheddar (sweeter than typical cheddars, crumbly yet creamy with a little crunch)

-4- McIntosh Apple (crisp, aromatic, and juicy with a mildly tart flavor) + Northern Lights Blue Cheese (dense, creamy, sharp and peppery with a fruity finish)
