    LTH,

    I like habanero, I like cheese, a combination of the two seems a natural. Unfortunately every version of this seemingly simple combo I've encountered has been, in a word, terrible. Either the habanero heat was muted to the point of why bother label it habanero, the cheese was cheese product or a mismanaged combination of the two. Cheese wiz with 6,000 Scoville unit 'habanero' anyone?

    I'd just about given up hope when my neighbor Dan brought me a block of habanero Muenster from Union Star Cheese in Freemont Wisconsin.

    Not only was Union Star's habanero Muenster real cheese, but it kicked a** in the habanero department.

    Union Star produces it's own cheese, I've been to their retail shop in Zittau, even have one of Union Star's Grateful CurdHead hats. :) I asked Dan, who is often in the area, to pick me up a few pounds of Habanero Muenster, along with Swiss, White Cheddar Cheese Curds and Union Star's excellent 5-year cheddar.

    If you don't have a friendly neighbor to pick up Habanero Muenster, Union Star offers mail order.

    Enjoy,

    I used to stop at Union Star all the time driving up to our summer place in Northern Wisconsin - the road from Oshkosh -> Stevens Point went right past it. Unfortunately, the road was re-routed a few years ago, so getting there means making a more conscious effort. But it's a great place - picture a large room full of cheesemaking equipment, with a relatively small area in front defined by a few banquet-style long tables and a couple of coolers - all loaded with cheeses and sausages, many available for tasting, most made right there in the room. Bringing back yummy memories.
