Harbison

Harbison is a Jasper Hill Creamery cheese named after Anne Harbison, the original contributor to the making of this cheese. It is a soft-ripened cow's milk cheese with a bloomy rind, wrapped in strips of spruce cambium, which are harvested from the woodlands of Jasper Hill.  When ripe, Harbison has a very spoonable texture that continues to soften until consumed. It’s woodsy and sweet with lemony, mustardy, and vegetal flavours. Oaked white wine or barrel-aged sour beers make great accompaniments. Also, don’t forget some fruit mostarda and crusty bread.

The cheese is held together by the bark, which can be peeled off when it is a bit younger. However, with loosened cheese, it is better that the bark is kept as is and the portions are spooned out separately.
