Name: Canal Junction Black Swamp Gouda

Location: Defiance, OH

Aged: 2-4 months

Milk: Cow

Price: $22/lb

Description: Named after the swamp that once covered large portions of central Ohio, Black Swamp is a buttery gouda style cheese. With a deeper, more tart flavor than its companion cheese Wabash, Black Swamp stands on its own or can be paired with pasta dishes, soups, and salads. This cheese is a good pick for those with more mild palettes, as it is very young for a gouda.
