Mercer Cheese - Nettle Gouda

Gouda 2.jpg

It’s double Gouda day you lucky cheese lovers! From the experimental to the traditional, it’s time to compare and contrast. The second gouda in this month’s box is a 1 year old Nettle Gouda, produced by 67 year old cheese maker Albert Alferink every spring in the Waikato. He uses stinging nettle to create a salty, traditional Dutch flavour. It’s delicious and we’ve heard this hard cheese goes well with bacon. Let us know if you try that combo out.
