Humboldt Fog® Grande

The subtle, tangy flavor and distinctive layer of edible vegetable ash are a prized combination in this iconic American original. You'll enjoy buttermilk and fresh cream, complemented with floral notes, herbal overtones and a clean citrus finish. As Humboldt Fog® matures, the layer of proteolysis just under the rind will increase developing a more intense flavor.

Serving Suggestions

  • Drizzle with honey and serve with prosciutto, tart apple and marcona almonds.

Cheese Care

To optimize cheese quality, keep cheese cold (33°–35°F) and wrapped in waxed paper.

Re-wrapping soft-ripened cheese in wax or parchment paper will allow the cheese to breathe as it continues to ripen.

Remove your cheese from the refrigerator at least one hour before serving.

Ingredients

Pasteurized cultured goat milk, salt, enzymes, and vegetable ash.
