Aged 4-6 Months
Black Swamp is a natural rind cheese whose flavor ranges from creamy and mild to harder and sharper depending on age and time of year made. Named after northwest Ohio's Great Black Swamp that once covered approximately 3 million acres, including where our farm now located. Due to the seasonal grasses our cows eat, Black Swamp changes in flavor more drastically than any of our other cheeses. It is a washed curd cheese, which removes part of the lactose, reducing potential for acidity and bitterness to build up while aging.
Uses: Tasty Black Swamp is versatile enough to be used in sandwiches, salads, pasta, casseroles and sauces; popular on cheese platters as well. Pair with bold red wines and dark beers.
