RENNET Animal Rennet
INGREDIENTS Pasteurized Goat's Milk
The little cheese with a big complex. The Little Napoleon is made by very gently hand-ladling the goat's milk curd into molds to allow for proper drainage and the fullest flavor development. This small, mold-ripened goat cheese has a butter colored mold rind, which develops blue mottling with age. When very young (two weeks) this cheese has a soft creamy texture and a gently acidic flavor. As it reaches middle age (two to three weeks) the cheese is semi-firm and develops a full, savory flavor. At one month, the cheese is firm to hard with a pungent goat flavor.
The Little Napoleon is excellent on crusty French bread, toast points or crackers and goes well with just a touch of sweet, like a fig jam or chutney. It is at its best if warmed slightly in the oven to accentuate the savory flavor.
