Midnight Moon®

Aged six months or more, Midnight Moon is a blushing, ivory-colored cheese that’s nutty and brown buttery up front with a long caramel finish. As the cheese ages, protein crystals form and lend a slight crunch to the otherwise dense and smooth cheese.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve with fig jam and seeded crackers or bread.
  • Try melted between slices of rustic sliced bread or as a decadent addition to macaroni and cheese.
