Christmas is always filled with lots of delicious food deliveries… Kringles, Maker’s Mark old fashioneds, pecan balls, and Mississippi State University cheese!
The Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station is housed on MS State’s campus and makes delicious cheese, jam, ice cream, salsa, peanut butter and a lots of other treats.
I got home from work the other day to find a box at my front door from MS State University / MAFES.
I knew immediately that it had to be cheese and I could barely contain my excitement when I opened it to find not one, but two, cheeses! Thanks, Mom!
The first was Vallagret, a buttery, nutty Swiss-style cheese. It is perfect for serving with crackers and chutney. This is a perfect pre-dinner snack!
The other was a total surprise! Its a jalapeno pepper cheese block, which sort of looks like its the consistency of Velveeta. The MAFES website says it is made by mixing and heating server lots of natural cheese with jalapeno peppers. I have never had it before but it I cannot wait to use it for spinach madeline. Stay posted!
