Can you eat the rind on Humboldt Fog and other soft-ripened cheeses?
We get this question all the time, and the answer is an emphatic YES! You can eat the rind on all of our soft-ripened cheeses — in fact, it’s a key part of the cheese’s flavor and adds a fantastic textural contrast. When it comes to rinds, try a bit, and if you like it, eat it! Just don’t eat any man-made rinds like wax or cloth, and steer clear of tree bark. Words to live by.
