Crater Lake Blue

Well, what did you expect? I did the video submission with Crater Lake Blue, so now I'm going to talk about it.

As I mentioned last month, Rogue River Blue from Rogue Creamery won best in show at the ACS competition this year. Great cheese. This post is not about that cheese. This is about Crater Lake Blue from the same guys in Oregon. Before you go any further, click here and read about this great creamery. I'll wait...

Okay, so now you know just how rad these guys are. Now let's get down to it. The cheese. I find that a lot of blue cheeses aren't well balanced. You get either a lot of blue, a lot of salt, or a lot of blue salt. This cheese isn't like that. It's a harmony of salty, blue-y, crumbly goodness with a milky, slightly sweet flavor.

Really good just eaten with some fruit, or in our case on top of some buffalo burgers.

I LOVE blue cheese. Blue cheese polenta is a regular dish.
