Turn a great cheese into the Easter Bunny (photo #1).

That’s what Jasper Hill Farm did with one of our favorite cheeses, Moses Sleeper, a bloomy-rind wheel made from pasteurized cow’s milk.

Jasper Hill Farm is an artisanal cheese maker in Vermont, and all of its 15 cheeses are glorious.

They were a Nibble Top Pick Of The Week.

Moses Sleeper is named after a Revolutionary War scout who was killed while defending Northeast Kingdom’s Bayley Hazen Military Road.

(Bayley Hazen is one of Jasper Hill’s famous blue cheeses.)

Moses Sleeper has a classic bloomy rind and underneath that delicious rind, a gooey, milky core.

One of our treats during the pandemic has been a monthly order of their great cheeses.
 
 
IS THERE A SPECIAL CHEESE FOR EASTER?

In some countries, a homemade cheese is served at Easter dinner.

These cheeses are easy to make at home:

  • Cirak, Slovak Easter Cheese
  • Hrudka, Ukranian Easter Cheese
  •  
    Otherwise, if you’ll be serving cheese at Easter, treat yourself to the best—like the cheeses from Jasper Hill Farm.
