Cheese 8

Winnimere from Jasper Lake Farm

To my surprise and delight, via Facebook I discovered that my local little cheese shop in Reno, NV, had gotten in a few rounds of this. It's hands down my favorite cheese and not JUST because it's so hard to get. It's a seasonal cheese and I haven't been able to find it in a couple of years. I bought a WHOLE ROUND, which is around a pound, and a whopping $40. So completely worth it. The owner of the shop thought that with luck and proper handling, I might get it to last a month (tho' at the rate we're going, I don't think that's going to be a problem!) She recommended that I cut it in quarters and store in the cold part of the fridge. Also gave me those special little papers they use and further suggested a second wrap of parchment paper. (Just including this info FWIW.) I'm no good at describing flavors so here's a bit from Murray's cheese shop. If you find it, please buy it and eat it. Quickly :)
