Featured Cheese: Jasper Hill Creamery Harbison

harbison

Award-winning Harbison farmstead cheese from Jasper Hill Creamery is a bark-wrapped bloomy-rind cheese with woodsy, sweet, herbal, and bright flavors. The bark, cut from Jasper Hill Farm’s woodlands in Greensboro, Vermont, holds the delicate cheese together, provides flavor to the creamy paste, and allows for an ideal presentation as the centerpiece of a cheese plate. Aged 3-6 weeks, this Jasper Hill original cheese is soft-ripened with a rustic, bloomy rind.

HARBISON is named for Anne Harbison, affectionately known as the grandmother of Greensboro. Along with breathtaking views, traditions and people are part of what makes Vermont’s working landscape special; we’re proud to honor Ms. Harbison’s contribution with this cheese.

SENSORY NOTES  – Harbison is a soft-ripened cheese with a rustic, bloomy rind. Young cheeses are wrapped in strips of spruce cambium, the tree’s inner bark layer, harvested from the woodlands of Jasper Hill. The spoonable texture begins to develop in our vaults, though the paste continues to soften on the way to market. Harbison is woodsy and sweet, balanced with lemon, mustard, and vegetal flavors.

PAIRING AND SERVICE  – Harbison is a great excuse to gather a few friends and scoop into a decadent treat. When a bit younger, the bark can be peeled away for sliced portioning. If the bark has fused with a more loosened paste, then the best approach is to leave the bark intact and spoon out portions from the top. Pair with oaked white wine, or barrel-aged sour beer. Fruit mostarda and crusty bread make nice accompaniments.

 

Peak Season Winter Citrus: Red MandaRosas

If you’re looking for the perfect piece of citrus to liven up the winter doldrums, Red MandaRosas are the mandarin for you. A blood orange and mandarin cultivar, these Sicilian-created and California-grown sweet, juicy globes, are just waiting to be added to salads, cocktails, vinaigrettes & desserts.  The flavor and internal colors of this variety vary and change as the fruit matures, very much like blood oranges, with some fruit having red/purple pigment & others more reddish orange.
Sure the weather may be dreary but it’s peak season for so many delicious citrus varieties! Enjoy two of our favorite navel oranges: Heirlooms and Cara Caras! The large juicy Heirloom is ultra-sweet with an amazing old world taste. With plentiful low-acid juice and little or no seeds, Caras are one of the most popular of all navels!

Arethusa Farm Dairy
Bantam, CT
In 1996 two ex-executive at Manolo Blahnik footwear, Anthony Yugaitis and George Makelmus purchased a century old horse farm across the road from their home in Litchfield, CT, and decided to revive the original dairy that stood in that spot a century before. They started out selling milk from their herd of Jersey, Brown Swiss, and Holstein cows which later evolved into a cheese-making venture. They use only milk from their highly pampered, purebred cows. They pride themselves on providing the absolute highest level of care for their animals and like to say “Great milk comes from great cows, and great cows come from Arethusa”.
