Fromagerie Au Gré des Champs

D'Iberville (Le)

This cheese has been produced since 2000, and its name, Le D’Iberville, comes from the place where it is made. Before municipal mergers, the Fromagerie was located in the town of Saint-Athanase-d’Iberville.

Made by Fromagerie Au Gré des Champs

Daniel Gosselin runs this farm in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu with Suzanne Dufresne and their daughters, Marie-Pier and Virginie. They produce cheeses with unique flavour, aroma and character - the result of a rigorous cheese making process using the milk of their herd of Swiss brown cows that pasture in fields of aromatic plants and flowers.

Keeping Cheese

Storage

Le D'Iberville and Semi-soft cheeses in general, should keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.

Proper storage includes making sure that the wrapping adheres well to the cheese to prevent it from drying out. Keep cheeses on a lower shelf of your refrigerator, far from foods with strong odours, to avoid absorption of unwanted tastes and smells. If you follow these guidelines, your refrigerator’s vegetable drawer will be a good storage spot.
 To preserve freshness of washed-rind cheeses, use breathable wrap like waxed paper to allow oxygen to work with the bacteria.

Freezing

Most cheeses can be frozen, but it is important to keep in mind that freezing can affect texture and character. This is why thawed cheeses are best reserved for use in cooking. Neither the taste nor texture of meals cooked with previously frozen cheeses will be affected.
 You can freeze Le D'Iberville cheese, in pieces of 500 g or less, for up to two months! Just carefully wrap cheese in plastic wrap and place in an airtight freezer bag or vacuum pack. Before using, it is important to allow cheese to thaw slowly in the refrigerator.
