AmaBlu® Blue Cheese
Ama-- from Latin for "I love" and blu, for blue cheese. This is a 75 day old cave-aged blue cheese. Limiting the aging to 75 days creates a blue cheese with a pleasant, tangy, “not too sharp” flavor profile. AmaBlu® comes in convenient exact weight crumbles and wedges for sprinkling on salad or melting over a hamburger.
The AmaBlu® family of blue veined cheese
The historic sandstone Caves of Faribault are home to three premium blue veined cheese available under the AmaBlu® product label. The three cheeses share similar pedigrees: raw cow’s milk, hand made in traditional open vats, hand salted and then cave aged in our sandstone caves.
The three cheeses vary in physical attributes, flavor profile and degree of affinage, the art of cave aging cheese. Our cheese makers vary the types of starter cultures, processing conditions and ageing temperatures to attain the desired profile. Variation from cheese to cheese is to be expected, as each of our natural hand-made and hand-salted cheese wheels are produced by hand from whole milk, not machine made under standardized conditions.
