the store is now carrying some new local cheese – ropp cheeses.
these cheeses are made in normal, illinois with the milk from jersey cows, which tends to be a bit sweeter than milk from regular dairy cows.
we have quite a selection cheddars (like white cheddar, jalapeno, green onion, horseradish) and a delicious swiss.
the one type that caught my eye was the cheddar blue, it looks like this:
i would say that the sweetness definitely shines through, creating a subtle and creamy blue cheese with a bit of a white cheddar bite.
i had some with crackers and apples – it was great. and then i had some in a salad – it was also great.
the specialty cheeses cost $10.19 per pound and the others are $9.19 per pound.
come in and try some local delights.
