New Cheesemakers: Mt. Mansfield Creamery

Vermont is surely the Napa Valley of cheese.

This is a new Vermont cheesemaker that we had seen on WCAX News, and when I spotted the label in the cheese case at Healthy Living I had to try it. They call this cheese a Havarti; it has a creamy flavor and springy texture.

If you are scared of venturing beyond Vermont cheddar, this is a good "gateway" cheese into the fascinating and delicious world that Vermont cheesemaking has become.
