Dr-Cow's Tree Nut Cheese - Aged Cashew Nuts

With all the innovation in nut cheeses, one of the original players in the nut cheese business still has one of the best cheeses in the industry -- Dr-Cow.  I first discovered this cheese several years ago and now I get to experience it again because it's in my local grocery. Yes, kids, that's right -- Dr-Cow is now available at Whole Foods P Street in DC! Contain your excitement!

This small artisan cheesemaker makes cheese from 100% raw, organic nuts. They select the nuts and seeds, then mix the nuts with their homemade acidophilus and a little royal pink himalayan salt. They make the nut curd the same way traditional dairy cheese is made. And the best part is that there are no preservatives, stabilizers, artificial ingredients or additives of any kind.

Dr-Cow makes many varieties of hard nut cheeses. The ones I've had in the past have been pretty strong in flavor, which I like. This time I tried the simple Aged Cashew Nuts flavor.  It is a great tasting cheese -- mild enough in flavor to pair with olives or other strong flavors and perfect to top a Mary's Gone Crackers cracker, which also has a strong flavor. The texture is absolutely perfect -- not too hard or too soft. They really have perfected the hard nut cheese.

All of them are gluten-free, soy-free, organic, and vegan. At $9.99 each, they aren't cheap, but well worth it. So go get yourself some nut cheese at the local Whole Foods (in the cheese section).

You can thank me later.

Full Disclosure: Although the cheese was provided to me for free to review, that in no way influenced my veracious opinion.
