In 1941 on the Maytag Dairy Farm just outside Newton, Iowa a prize winning blue was born now donning the name Maytag Blue. A lovely cheese bestowed upon the dairy from the prize winning Holstein Cattle. Using the 1900 traditional cave curing process and producing in low quantities to ensure quality, the Maytag family is still producing the very same high quality blue cheese today.
Maytag Blue cheese is ripened over 6 months during which it develops a dense, crumbly texture and semi-sharp flavor and slightly pungent odor. Every bite of Maytag melts in the mouth releasing a slightly tangy flavor with a lemony finish.
This American gourmet cheese can be crumbled into salads, on crackers or melted on a burger while you are sipping that ale or lager. Maytag Blue Cheese is used in many recipes and loved all over the country.
