Pairing Cheese with Apples

Pairing cheese with applesIt’s that time of year where mornings are cooler and dusk comes upon us just a tad bit earlier. Summer is ending and fall is in the air. Trees are soaking up the last summer rays and apples have weighed down their branches. Your mouth waters just thinking of biting into a sweet, juicy apple.

Wisconsin cheese is great for pairing with apples and it’s easy. In a blog article by U.S. Apple Association, Apples, an Aphrodisiac through the Ages, they suggest to think of apples as wine. Tart, crisp apples are like very dry white wine, while a sweet, juicy apple such as Jonagold, is more like a fruity white, and spicy apples is similar to a spicy, sweet Zinfandel.

Here are some recommended pairings:

Stay clear of really pungent cheeses such as aged brick or Limburger. They are just too strong and will overpower the apple.

If you want to add a French flair, try Comte which has notes of apricots and caramel that complements perfectly with the sweetness of the apple.

Whatever you choose, savor the last of summer with a healthy, fresh snack of apples and great cheese.

West Allis Cheese & Sausage Shoppe offers the largest selection of high-quality Wisconsin cheeses. Visit one of our three stores, or if you are not in the neighborhood, consider ordering from our website.
