Jeff's Select Gouda
by Caves of Faribault. Product of USA.
Jeff's Select Gouda made by Jeff Wideman and Jeff Jirik (Wisconsin/Minnesota) – A collaboration between two old friends, Jeff's Select was inspired after travels to the Netherlands, where they discovered their love for Gouda. Made from pasteurized cow’s milk in Wisconsin, rubbed with annatto and then finished in the warm sandstone caves of Faribault, Minnesota, this gouda is full-bodied with a classic European nuttiness and smooth caramel note on the finish. Initially sharp and salty, it melts in your mouth, finishing both creamy and sweet.
Unlike most young Goudas, this cheese develops a natural rind during the cave aging process, so it is not covered in wax.
Ingredients: pasteurized part-skim cow's milk, salt, enzymes, annatto (for color). CONTAINS: MILK

Jeff's Gouda is a very special cheese, hard to find! The locals know it - I first tried it on a duck burger with bacon at the Depot restaurant in Fairbault, MN. Hooked.
I was thrilled to find some here - you guys rock for just knowing about this! And not to mention packaging was thorough, with ice packs still very cold, in great condition, boxed tightly and safely. Cheese was cut and wrapped neatly and presentably for gifting.
Please keep an eye on Caves of Fairbault products - they blow me away, from all the way out here in Michigan.
Totally blown away by this gouda! And made in America. YUM!
