Cypress Grove Humbold Fog Pepper Remix

The Original American Original® — remixed!

Humboldt Fog paved the way for soft-ripened goat cheese in America, but this is Humboldt Fog like you’ve never seen it before. Each limited edition, handcrafted wheel features a distinctive ribbon of chilies, curry, and harissa — with just the smallest kick in the pants. You'll also enjoy buttermilk and fresh cream, complemented with floral notes, herbaceous over-tones, and a clean citrus finish. As Humboldt Fog Pepper Remix matures, the creamline develops and the flavor intensifies.

August Cheese Of The Month

Deer Creek Cheese:

The Rattlesnake

Premium Tequila & Habanero Pepper Infused Specialty Cheddar

The Rattlesnake is a true flavor experience — spicy, sweet, tropical, and HOT. We start with a smooth, creamy medium aged Cheddar and infuse it with premium gold tequila and Habanero peppers. The warmth and sweetness of the tequila open your palate to the smooth and creamy mellowness of a perfectly aged Cheddar. And just when you are wondering where the Habaneros are, the heat bursts forth for an unforgettable finish. Watch out — this cheese just might bite you back!

By: Co+op, stronger together

Total Time: 70 minutes; 10 minutes active

Servings: approximately 12

Why make your own barbecue sauce? This sweet, smoky, spice cherry chipotle barbecue sauce is one mouthwatering reason.   

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cherries, washed and pitted

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons stone-ground mustard

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon smoked sea salt

  • 2/3 cups canned diced tomatoes with chilies

  • 1/4 cup canned chipotle sauce

  • 1/3 cup turbinado sugar

Preparation

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until well combined and transfer to a saucepan. Cook, stirring occasionally, on medium heat for about 60 minutes until sauce is reduced by half, or reaches desired thickness.

Serving Suggestion

Take advantage of in-season fresh cherries and make a double batch of this slightly sweet, slightly spicy sauce. Serve with barbecued chicken, pork or burgers, or drizzle over smoky marinated tofu steaks.
