by Franz Berchtold, Bio-Käserei Wiggensbach. Product of Germany.
Fruity Franzle pays tribute to another important agricultural product of the area around the dairy, apples. Once removed from a short trip in a brine tank, Fruity Franzle continues to be aged and washed with a mixture of apple cider and apple must, for up to three months. The mixture used here is made up of apples that grow on the same farms the cows are raised on, further connecting the cheese back to the land it belongs to.
Like the other cheeses from Bio-Käserei Wiggensbach, the texture is rich thanks to the high fat content of the milk used. But the apple cider wash the cheese receives while aging provides a playfully bright acidity that helps to balance this. The aroma of apples is also recognizable from the rind, helping to almost transport you to the orchards and fields of Bavaria where this cheese starts.
Ingredients: pasteurized cow's milk, salt, cultures, vegetarian rennet.

All cheeses we slice to order and wrap in cheese paper as we want you to enjoy original flavor of cheese - not damaged by vacuum or plastic.
All meats which require slicing we slice to order and lay it out on wax paper (deli-style) so it is easy to separate slices.
