The Wabash Cannonball

July 7, 2010

Once again, I find myself busy with the part of my life that doesn’t (unfortunately) involve cheese.  To leave you all with my latest obsession from behind the counter, I offer you the Wabash Cannonball from Capriole.  Located in southern Indiana, Capriole makes goat cheese…period.  You might think that this is somewhat limiting, but I am here to tell you that they make some of the very best in the country.  At Lucy’s Whey we offer at least 4 different Capriole Goat cheeses at any one time because they are so good and so unique.

The Wabash Cannonball is a small 3 oz. ball of aged cheese  that is dusted with ash to assist with the aging.  At 3 weeks, the texture is like fudge, but the flavor is bright – almost lemony.  It was a revelation the first time I tried it and it usually tops my suggestion list when a customer is looking for a cheese to start a meal.  The dense texture and bright flavor of this cheese provide a great starting point for any meal.  If you see one, be sure and grab it.  They don’t last long…

    I’ll keep a look out for it. I always love a new yummy cheese.

    I’m so impressed that you make so many cheeses. I have the home mozzarella kit, which is fun, but would LOVE to make cheddar and camembert and real mozzarella and chevre and, well, the list is long.

    Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Rebecca,
      Thanks for the comment! Making cheese at home is a great hobby that I definitely recommend. If you take a look at my post on chevre, it can definitely be accomplished in a small space with just a few pieces of equipment. Give it a try! If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks for reading!
