Fromage Blanc (Cowgirl)
Wagon Wheel (Cowgirl) - started out as an attempt at an Asiago Pressato.
Red Hawk Julian Date 61 (Cowgirl) 5 days old
Red Hawk Julian Date 73 (Cowgirl)
Red Hawk Julian Date 90 (Cowgirl)
30 days (when it is first sold/minimum age)
Matt- some time you mentioned you felt that Cowgirl was selling too young. Here's a tip from Cheesemaker Maureen Cunnie:
Each Cowgirl is stamped with a five digit number.
1) batch of the day, a 0 means only batch made that day.
2) creamery, 0=Point Reyes & 2=Petaluma
3) Julian date (date made). Last three digits. "093" is today.
Maureen's personal ideal for Tam, Red Hawk, Inverness, is around 40-45 days.
Red Hawk made today meets her ideal, then, around day 133.
So if you think +40 from the Julian...
Perhaps your cheesemonger can flag you when they have them, or hold and age for you.Edited by Cary Grant - 4/2/12 at 7:22pm
