Wabash Cannon Ball
Aged just ten days, the Cannonball is by far Capriole's most well known, best loved cheese—and for good reason. This expressive little sphere packs a punch! Beneath her wrinkly exterior lies a complexity not often found in such a young cheese.

Store at <41°. Wrap in waxed or parchment paper overwrapped with plastic wrap, or crystal wrap so that the cheese can continue to breathe and ripen. Can also be stored in a plastic container with a few holes in the lid. This cheese needs humidity but also needs to breathe to maintain its rind. Allow to come to room temperature (about an hour) before serving.

I absolutely loved this Wabash Cannon Ball! I'll definitely be back to Capella for more of this scrumptious goodness. How many years I've waited to try something so perfect. And who knew it would be right here in my favorite city of Atlanta, GA! Amazing!
