Don’t let the aromatic, allium-scented rind scare you, this bright orange cheese is more than meets the eye (and nose)! Cabra la Mancha is a washed rind goat’s milk cheese with a bold rind and a pleasant, lactic, mild paste. Its texture is semi-firm, yet pudding-like and mouth-coating, making for a memorable, savorable experience. Echoes of cinnamon and other warm spices make Cabra a perfect match for light red wines and cranberry apple preserves.
Firefly Farms, located in Accident Maryland, has been making artisan goat and cow’s milk cheeses since 2000. They source their milk from a cooperative of family farms in Maryland and Pennsylvania, which helps bolster their rural agricultural economy.
