Goblin made its debut at the Ithaca Farmers Market on Halloween weekend of 2015. We quickly sold out of our entire first batch and have been increasing production ever since to meet the demand for this cheese. Goblin is a semi firm, Alpine style cheese with a smooth straw colored paste. Aged for over three months, this cheese has a mild spicy side, with a subtle aroma from the brine aging. Its real charm though, is its fruity tanginess, imparted by the special combination of our own Swiss cows milk and the cultures we add, making it a perfect complement for snacks, sandwiches, grilling, as a melting cheese or in fondue. This cheese is particularly well-suited to wine pairing. Goblin's herbal, nutty flavor balances well with Riesling's high acids and fruity tang. Also try pairing with Dolcetto, Red & White Rhones.
Ingredients: our own pasteurized cows' milk, cultures, vegetable rennet, salt.
