We Just add a new cheese to our cheese Case here at Tomato Sunshine. This is a Traditional, farmhouse, hard cheese made from cow’s milk. It is a boulder-shaped cheese with brushed, natural rind which is either rubbed with annatto or “painted” with red plastic. The curd is colored with annatto and mixed with cumin seeds before being pressed and washed in brine. The cumin provides an aromatic flavor that contrasts well with the creamy, nutty character of the cheese. The cheese is quite similar to Gouda but is more drier.
