With all this talk of cheese, we've found a few lovely ways to incorporate it!
1- Slice up fresh pears, place a generous piece of Cactus Jack, Saddlestring Swiss, or Cowboy Cheddar on top and then sprinkle a few crispy walnuts or pecans on top. YUM! Did you know nuts are more digestible if first soaked then slowly dried till crispy? Another topic for a future blog!
2- Kale (or any fresh greens) Salad - Chop salad in with apples, berries and cubes of any aged cheese, or Pheobe's Marinated Feta. Whisk lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste and toss with your greens mix. Top with some quality parmesan cheese and enjoy!
3- Creamy Broccoli - Chop and combine 1 head of broccoli, 8 crispy bacon slices, 1/4 cup red onion, 1/4 cup roasted almonds, and 8 ounces of Diamond S aged cheese. Mix with dressing consisting of 1/2 cup mayo, 1/2 cup plain raw yogurt, 2T lemon juice, 1T sugar or honey, and salt/pepper to taste.
The above recipes can be enjoyed on their own with with a nice glass of Bordeaux Red, aged Zinfandel, or a Malbec wine!
Diamond S Dairy is a busy operation this time of year! We are working to make and age more cheeses and Wyoming is a challenging place to do so. Cheese needs a higher humidity (75% minnimum) in order to age well. Due to our summer being what it's been, that humidity has been tough to achieve and our cheese is resulting more on the sharp side.
So if you love your cheese sharp, get on our list as our 60 pounds of aging cheese is disappearing!! The fresh side of our dairy goods has picked up, too, so we've not been able to add to our aging room in several weeks. Raw milk, sharper Diamond S cheese can be a wonderfully new experience for you!
Remember we have Cowboy Cheddar Cactus Jack, and Saddlestring Swiss. Exact weights are hard to cut from each wheel. We will do our best to cut the weight you want, just let us know when and what size you want!
