TIP OF THE DAY: Cheese Flag For July 4th

You can fly the flag on July 4th, and you can eat it too.

This tasty flag was created by Vermont Farmstead Cheese Co., an award-winning creamery in Woodstock, Vermont. The creamery specializes in Cheddar, Edam, Tilsit and WindsorDale (based on a 1800 farmhouse Wensleydale recipe).

You can make your own flag cheese plate with:

  • Cubes of one or several different white cheeses.
  • Red “stripes” made of cherry tomatoes, peppadews and/or red bell pepper strips.
  • A dish of blueberries in the “stars” field, or cubes of blue cheese.
  • A plate of white crackers on the side—ideally these star-shaped crackers.
  • For a red, white and blue-ish cracker effect, look for different colored rice crackers. You can find them in pink, white and black (we love them!).
  •  

    If you don’t have a large, white rectangular plate, use a rectangular baking pan. If it isn’t in gleaming condition, cover it with foil.

    Play John Philip Sousa marches as you prepare the food.
