Jasper Hill Farm Moses Sleeper
From the undisputed kings of Vermont artisan cheesemaking, another world-class American Original. Ayrshire cow's milk is formed into discs a bit larger than your typical Camembert, then aged with care in the Cellars at Jasper Hill for a quick 60 days. Once released, Moses usually has a classic white bloomy rind, with a smattering of exotic mauve- and dandelion-hued molds heightening its complexity. The paste is a revelation - milky, luscious, prone to running across the plate. Sparkling white wine (or, even better, cider) propels it to new heights.
Moses Sleeper is named for a Revolutionary War-era scout. He was cut down with his comrade Constant Bliss along Bayley Hazen Road in 1781. Jasper Hill has named cheeses after Moses Sleeper, Constant Bliss and Bayley Hazen!
Wheels are approximately 1.2 pounds. A wheel should last long enough for 8 - 10 people to get a taste, but move fast.
