Asher Blue

Asher Blue is a blue cheese named after owner Sweet Grass Dairy's second son, Asher Blue. It is one of the few blue cheeses in the United States with a natural rind. It is made from raw cow's milk and aged for approximately 90 days. The cheese features a creamy interior with characteristic blue veins throughout the pate. Flavours are subtle mushroomy with a surprisingly mild finish.

To eat the cheese, serve it with jam and crackers, crumble it on a salad or use it as a key ingredient in a salad dressing. Pair it with zesty wines like Port or Sauternes, or full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon. Beer lovers could go for strong ale as well.
