Hoffman’s Vermont White Cheddar
September 24, 2010
Made with raw milk from the Jersey cow
The Lady sells several Hoffman cheese products but this one is the only one that is natural cheese.
We like cheddar around the manse; it’s a versatile cheese that is at home on a cheese plate and always a winner in mac n cheese.
The Hoffman’s Natural White Cheddar is a full-flavored cheese with a sweet, nutty mellow taste. It has those flavor crunchies that burst when you bite into them. This cheese is made in Vermont using raw milk from the Jersey cow. Jersey cows produce richer milk that has a higher butterfat, calcium and protein content than the Holstein cow.
I give Hoffman’s Vermont White Cheddar 3 Paws out of 4 Paws (cause that’s all I’ve got).
Serving Suggestions: The Lady served this for The Man’s tasting pleasure on Venta Crackers and cubed mine in one of my glass bowls. I was hoping for a little Varanus komodoensis tartare but The Lady explained that she can’t buy that at the Hawthorne Fred Meyer meat counter, most likely because it’s considered a “vulernable” species and approaching “endangered”… well excuse me, but these suckers are huge and should be able to protect themselves… must be that opposable thumb thingie again that gives humankind… well… the thumbs up over the VK… sheesh.
