Day 680 : Of less sunlight, stonehenge, and mid-Winter feasts

The winter solstice occurs at 12:30 tonight. Technically that means that the Earth's axis is farthest away from the sun causing places north of the Arctic Circle to experience twenty four hours of darkness. It's also considered a day of rebirth, of gathering together and feasting. So on this day, the shortest of the year, what cheese shall we feast on?

How about Cypress Grove's Midnight Moon?

A six month aged goat's milk waxed rinded cheese. Nutty and caramelly, this cheese has that fantastic aged crystallized crunch to it with a light crisp, citrusy, brightness. Perfect for that Midwinter feast you plan on attending.
