Types of Upper Canada Cheese
Some of the popular cheese products here include Comfort Cream, a rind cheese with a soft creamy interior. Hand salted and hand wrapped, there are several takers for this cheese with it fresh truffle flavours and a buttery, tangy finish. Although it is aged for four weeks, a few more weeks of ageing gives it a more mature taste.
Another favourite is the Guernsey Girl Grilling Cheese with its salty flavour. It can be fried or grilled to produce a caramelized surface; either way it’s delicious.
The nutty, earthy and buttery flavours of another product Niagara Gold are also great. It is mild when young but acquires pungency with age.
