Green Dirt Creamery - Sheep milk Cheese
Bossa is our signature cheese. It is a “washed-rind”cheese, a style of cheese in which brine (salt water, sometimes with added cultures) or spirits are applied to the surface as it ripens. *Note: with Bossa we use brine. Washed rind cheeses tend to have pungent aromas and are lovingly referred to as stinky cheeses. Bossa is aged for 5 weeks before wrapping and reaches its peak at about 8-9 weeks. Bossa tastes meaty, like beef broth or bacon. It can have buttery or nutty notes. It also has a delicate honey-nectar flavor that is exquisite.
Bossa has a super soft, silky texture, with a custard like center. At the peak of ripeness, when the paste is very runny, a favorite way to serve Bossa is with the top cut off, and spooned out onto crusty baguette. Dipping fruit or vegetables into the center is equally as delicious.
