The newest cheese from Jasper Hill Farm, Sherry Gray, is a double-cream, ash-ripened medallion made with grass-fed cows’ milk and additional cream from Monument Farms in the Champlain Valley.
The detailed ripening makes for a truly indulgent, one-of-a-kind cheese. Sherry Gray is, first, a feast for the eyes with its soft, silvery rind; the black ash peeking through a frosty layer of delicate bloom. Cutting into the wheel reveals a yielding, glistening paste which resembles the texture of softened butter. Flavors of cultured cream dominate, with subtle hints of fresh button mushrooms and a warm, nutty finish that lingers on the palate.
This cheese honors the memory of a treasured member of the community. Sherry loved Greensboro, VT dearly. He was a model citizen, boosted community, and inspired generations as a substitute teacher and mentor to many.
