It’s Fromage Friday!
Please welcome my very first guest blogger: Esther Hill of Cheese All That!
This cheesey lady is here to tell you about one of the very best ash-ripened cheeses, Wabash Cannonball from the legendary Capriole in Indiana.
There seems to be a new American creamery popping up every other month these days, but before we had Alemar, Jasper Hill, Prairie Fruits Farm, and Uplands, there was Judy Schad and her goats at Capriole Farms in Greenville, Indiana. In 1992, amid the inauguration of Bill Clinton, Johnny Carson’s retirement from the Tonight Show, and the construction of the massive Mall of America, Judy was hand-crafting tiny chevre treasures. Wabash Cannonball won the coveted “Best in Show” award at the American Cheese Society’s annual competition in 1995, and it has continued to be a joy ever since.
