Maytag Blue

Maytag is a blue cheese produced by Maytag Dairy Farms from the milk of prize winning herd of Holstein cattle. The farm located outside of Newton, Iowa has been making this handcrafted cheese since 1941 using traditional methods of curing. Even today, the blue cheese is not produced in huge quantities as the cheese makers want to ensure that only the best quality cheese reaches the consumers.

Maytag Blue cheese is ripened over six months during when it develops a dense, crumbly texture and semi-sharp flavor. Every bite of Maytag melts in the mouth releasing a slightly tangy flavor with a lemony finish. With its pungent odor, the cheese might not suit everyone’s tastes. The cheese delivered in decorative silver foil tastes delectable when crumbled into salads, crackers or melted onto a burger.

Also, try it with glass of ale or lager. Other cheeses from the farm include Natural White Cheddar, Cheddar Cheese Spread and Brick & Baby Swiss.
