Fun Fact About Blue Cheese

A pair of blue cheese blocks.

Blue cheese is a wildly popular cheese that Americans eat with various foods, from salads to steaks. During the production of blue cheese, cultures of the mold Penicillum are added, which gives the cheese its distinct appearance and small. If Penicillum reminds you of penicillin, then you’ve found a connection; the mold is related to the world-changing antibiotic. Blue cheese is known to pair well with summer berries such as raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries… making it the perfect addition to a summer fresh salad!
