An American Original + July 4th

Declare independence from the standard 4th of July fare by offering your guests the perfect, patriotic pairing of Humboldt Fog + fresh sweet berries. This eye-popping centerpiece is ideal for all day nibbling as it will become creamier and more luscious as the day progresses…

Can you believe this American original will soon celebrate its 20th birthday?

Creating this holiday treat is simple: For smaller gatherings, use a Humboldt Fog Mini [1 lb] and for larger groups, use the 5-pound Humboldt Fog Grande [pictured]. For best results, berries should be completely dry before placing on the fluffy white rind. Create a mini flag with a personalized message on the computer and attach it to a wooden skewer

Serve with rustic artisan breads + honey -  pairs well with Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc or a Pinot Noir. Beer lovers will enjoy it accompanied by a light wheat beer or pale ale.
