I'm really in a cheese mood lately. Not sure why, but its been fun.
This is a Hennings Cranberry Chipolte Cheddar. Wow! Imagine biting into a piece of cheese, and having it be a little sweet, then *kapow!* hot right after that. Did you ever have that Halapeno Jelly over Cream Cheese dip/spread that used to be really popular (maybe it still is, I don't know). Its kind of like that. Except different.
What really attracted me to this (before I'd tasted it) was the beautiful rind. I have my suspicions about this though - although the cheese was labeled as being Hennings, the rind in no way looks to be anything about Hennings. Right? You can't get "Hennings" out of what cryptic bits are stenciled there.
There's no doubt its cranberry chipolte cheddar. None. And Hennings does make a cranberry chipotle cheddar. But as for the actual maker of this piece? Not too sure. The person who labeled this may have goofed. I guess it doesn't really matter, and may just have to remain a mystery.
I had fun building up the marble-y bits of stuff with colored pencils. This was done with Coloursofts on Stonehenge paper. Its 8 x 10 inches.
And now its onto something else ...
