Kunik is a dreamy triple cream cheese made from goats' milk spiked with fresh Jersey cream in the Adirondack Mountains at Nettle Meadow Farm. When young, Kunik has the texture of cold butter, and is light, tangy, and similar to crème-fraîche in flavor. As it ripens, it becomes more supple, loose, and gamey, the goat cheese flavors becoming more assertive. Kunik is delightful at any state of ripeness, and deserves a much-coveted place in your belly. As we like to say here at Saxelby Cheese, it's kind of like gelato with a rind. Each wheel weighs in between 1lb and 1.2lb and is aged 4-6 weeks. Pairing notes: Bubbles of any kind… (champagne, prosecco, dry cider) crisp white wines like dry riesling, gewurztraminer, bright reds like pinot noir and zinfandel
Try Kunik with our local wildflower honey or Quince and Apple's fig and black tea jam for an extra sweet treat.
