Thanks to a global marketplace, Utahns can enjoy many cheeses from around the world. This week we explore: Prairie Breeze™.

What is it? » This is no ordinary cheese. How many cheeses do you know of that are still made the old-fashioned way? By old-fashioned, I mean Holstein and Jersey cows that are hand-milked by Mennonite Amish in Iowa. The yellow cheese is aged for six months in vacuum-sealed plastic. The texture is creamy like a cheddar with little nibs of crystals scattered throughout. The taste is at once sweet and nutty.
