If you missed my past two posts (HERE and HERE), then you missed what our Cheese of the Month is for July and August–a variety of 6-ounce wedges of the Beehive Cheese Company’s most popular cheeses! You’ve previously read about Barely Buzzed and Big John’s Cajun, and today you’ll get to meet the simple yet flavorful Seahive!
Taking 3rd place at the 2011 American Cheese Society awards, Seahive is a fuller-bodied cheese made from pasteurized Jersey cow milk from northern Utah. It is fairly smooth and creamy with a beautifully balanced, complex flavor. Seahive is a cheddar-style cheese, hand-rubbed with local wildflower honey and RealSalt® sea salt, which is harvested from an ancient sea bed near Redmond, Utah. The flavor combination is phenomenal, combining bursts of sweet, fruity honey with the salty, sharpness of the cheese. Seahive adds adventure and uniqueness to any cheese board. It pairs beautifully with hoppy ales, fruity red wines, and even bourbon! Try shaving a little bit of Seahive onto a salad–I promise you, you won’t be disappointed!
We’ve got one more Cheese of the Month variety left, look out for it next week!
