Caring For Your Cheese
Shipping Notes

Limburger is a stinky cow’s milk cheese that originated in Limburg. Today, that area is known as Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. The majority of Limburg cheese in production today is made in Germany.

To watch Limburg cheese mature is an interesting site. At one month old it resembles Feta in texture and taste. As the weeks pass, a creamy invasion begins at the rind and works its way deeper towards the core of the cheese. By three months, the entire mass of the Limburger is soft, spreadable and pungent. Lovers of Limburger are truly special people with a unique palate and a hunger for the unexpected.

A popular preparation of Limburger cheese is the Limburger sandwich; Rye bread, spread with cheese and toped off with a large slice of onion.

If you’re looking for a wine pairing, stop. Limburger cheese will overpower just about any wine you try with it. Enjoy your stinky snack with a hearty beer or an intense cup of coffee.

Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.

For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.

A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.

B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.

C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.

D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.

E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.

Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).

As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.

For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.
