Paw Paw Gelato For Thanksgiving

It’s not too late to ship gelato for thanksgiving, but it’s close. Monday and Tuesday are the last days to have the Thanksgiving Gelato Box shipped. Josh has created a fantastic collection of flavors that go great on pies, like Cinnamon, Pumpkin, Vanilla, and our award winning Chocolate. Plus a last chance taste of Michigan summer with possibly the best Blueberry Sorbet you’ll ever taste and the unique, slightly exotic Paw Paw.  If you’ve never had the chance to taste a Paw Paw, this is your opportunity. gelato by mail

Calling all Hungarians! Zingerman’s Creamery Liptauer is our classic version of this Hungarian national spread (I don’t believe that Liptauer has actually ever been formally awarded this status-but maybe it should.) An amazing blend of Creamery Farm Cheese, two types of paprika, garlic, caraway, black pepper, sea salt capers and  touch of anchovy paste. This cheese spread is a natural with caraway rye bread and a pint of hearty ale. liptauer by mail

A dramatic way to serve the Manchester for Thanksgiving is to split the cheese horizontally (unflavored dental floss works extremely well) put a mixture of fig or plum preserve,  toasted nuts and dried fruit on the cut face of the cheese. Place the top back on and cover the entire cheese with puff pastry. You need to seal the puff pastry well to avoid leakage. Then place the cheese in the oven and bake until the pastry is lightly browned and serve. I like to bake it at a low temperature (325) to keep the pastry from puffing out too much and by pulling it out when the pastry is lightly browned, the cheese is softened and not liquified. You can also place the cheese in the freezer for an hour before wrapping it to help keep the cheese from melting too much.

Happy Thanksgiving from the gang at the Creamery.
