As the old saying goes, March “comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.” But this month, we’re all about the fox here in the Vineyard Market–Belton Farm’s Red Fox! This month our featured cheese is a Red Leicester-style cheese from England. Red Fox is aged for about 15 months, giving it a smooth yet crumbly texture with a delightful crunch provided by calcium lactate crystals packed within–the same crunch found in aged Gouda! It has a complex combination of sweet, savory, and nutty flavors with a clean aftertaste. Bright russet in color (a result of adding annatto to the milk), Red Fox adds a beautiful pop of color to your cheese board or provides a delicious alternative when melted on a burger!
Check with your local Bottle King Vineyard Market for availability.
