The base of Little Big Apple is the decadently creamy Organic Triple Cream from Champlain Valley Creamery in Vergennes, Vermont. This little guy is crafted with cultured whole milk and cream -- it is the perfect melt in your mouth sort of cheese. Hints of mushroomy earthiness from the bloomy rind and a buttery milky interior abound. Once our Organic Triple Cream cheese arrives at Murray's caves it is wrapped in local apple leaves that have been soaked in local New York state apple brandy. It is then aged for a few more weeks. Then it is ready to enjoy! Yes you still have the mushroom creaminess of the triple cream but now you also have a fabulously fantastic slight rustic earthy sweetness. A true delight and perfect for the Fall! Go out and grab one at Murray's for $10.99 and enjoy it with an off dry Cider from Eve's Cidery or Bellwether Farm's Cider. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!
