Trader Joes Seasonal Finds: Potted Stilton Cheese

I was browsing Trader Joes the other day as I was picking up lunch and a blue ceramic little pot caught my eye as I was looking at the blue cheeses.  It was a little cobalt blue ceramic pot of Stilton cheese with the Trader Joes rebranding.  It was $9.99 for the pot of Stilton.

One of the combinations I really love is pear with blue cheese on crackers/bread or grapes and blue cheese.  The sweetness of the fruit really compliments the blue cheese flavor. This Stilton cheese benefits from warming up to room temperature – around 65-72F or so and the spreadability of the cheese changes from crumbly to easily spread.

When I went to checkout, the team member told me I was the first person she had seen who purchased it and that it was a seasonable item.  You can reuse this little pot and I think it would make a nice addition to my kitchen counter.  I purchased two types of crackers to go along with the cheese – stone ground crackers as well as a seasonal Pistachio and Pomegranate crisp.


Stilton is a relatively strong blue cheese and the sweetness from the Pomegranate cracker really went well.
