It's no secret that I love cheese, especially from Cowgirl Creamery, but I just fell in love with their seasonal cheese, and HAD to share.
Here is all the info on this amazing product, straight from the Cowgirl's Cheese Library:
St Pat is our seasonal Spring-to-Summer cheese. These rounds are made with whole organic milk from John Taverna's Chileno Valley Jersey Dairy and are wrapped with stinging nettle leaves. (Do not fear the nettles, since they are frozen to remove the sting before they are wrapped around the cheese.) St Pat, with its distinctive, green rind, commemorates the arrival of spring in Marin County. The nettle leaves impart a smoky, artichoke flavor, and after three weeks of aging, St Pat is mellow, soft and full of flavor. St Pat received a Gold Medal at the 2009 North American Jersey Cheese Competition.
All Cowgirl Creamery cheeses are Marin Organic Certified Agricultural Products.
