Cheese, Cow Gouda - Plain Mild - 1 ea (approx. 200g-250g one piece in a sealed package)
Plain Mild Cow Gouda has a mild, soft, and almost sweet creamy taste and texture. They are the best on sandwiches or crackers.
Storage: cheese has a living and breathing structure, so don't let it suffocate in plastic. Wrap Gouda in parchment paper, then loosely wrap that in plastic and store it in the warmest part of the fridge. It is not recommended to freeze gouda cheese unless you absolutely must.
Vendor: Smits and Co.w Farm Cheese in Chilliwack, BC.
Smits and Co.w are a family dairy with a focus on Gouda Cheese. Their Dutch heritage makes that a natural fit, and they do it extremely well. They have their own herd of cows, a mix of Holstein and Brown Swiss, that they milk for all the cow’s milk cheeses that they make. They also make a very tasty range of Goat Gouda with goat’s milk from neighbouring farms.
The cows are pastured at least half of the year and their milk is pumped through a stainless steel pipe system straight to the processing facility where it is then pasteurized and made into their delicious gouda style cheeses, quark, and cheese curds. They also use milk from a local goat herd to produce several flavours of goat cheese! After processing, spending some time in the brine bath, and drying, the cheeses are coated and allowed to age. Two to three months later they are ready to be sold as mild cheese and packaged as needed.
