Alpine cheeses inspire the recipe for this Jasper Hill Creamery original. Alpha Tolman has a buttery, fruit and nut flavor when young, developing bold meaty, caramelized onion flavors as it matures. The texture is dense and pliant, easily portioned and ideal for melting. Anyone called for a fondue party? Try it with our pear jam or raw honey.
Mass-produced, processed cheese is partially not even cheese at all. Nearly half of it is cut with salt, food dyes, preservatives, emulsifiers, and other artificial ingredients to extend its shelf-life, change its texture, and significantly cut its cost. These ingredients are what cause most grocery store cheddars to be dry, rubbery, and more suitable to melting. On top of that, the milk often comes from factory farms, where dairy cows are mistreated and given growth hormones to increase milk production, which ultimately requires higher levels of antibiotics.
Jasper Hill is a working dairy farm with an on-site creamery in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. They operate an underground aging facility (also known as cheese cave) and feed leftover whey from the cheesemaking process to their heritage breed pigs. Their holistic model and approach to cheese-making is what sets them apart from industrial dairy farms. They make the highest possible quality products in a way that supports Vermont's working landscape.
