Gouda GoldGouda Gold – This cheese may soften due to the high temperatures expected on Wednesday. However, if you put it in the refrigerator, it will firm up. 

Grower: Hidden Hills Dairy

Store: Keep refrigerated.

Notes from the farmer: This cheese is made only in the summer months when the cows are on pasture to capture the natural golden color of the grass. Aged 5-8 months, this cheese works equally well on a cheese tray, baked in a casserole or paired with fruit. As “gouda” as it gets!
