Crocodile Tear

Crocodile Tear is a cone shaped teardrop cheese hand moulded from pasteurized goat's milk. It has a white, bloomy rind that is dusted with paprika and left to ripen for about three weeks. As it matures, the 3 oz. creamy droplet becomes firmer and more pungent. It is best eaten when young, about 10-15 days.
