Maytag Blue Cheese

Did you know there is a Maytag Blue Cheese out there? Yes, that's right, the same people who make the appliances. Back in November I took my mother to the Taste of Home Cooking School for her birthday. (This was the 3rd one we've been to and I think I'm getting more and more dissappointed each time.) Anyways, the cooking instructor started talking about Maytag Blue Cheese. Apparently the children or grandchildren (or whoever they are) of the original Maytag family started a dairy farm nearby in the 1940's and their blue cheese has been a hit ever since. Go figure.

I also think it's sort of odd that both Maytag and Amana come from Iowa. Amana.....boy, do I have some stories to tell about being in the Amana Colonies back in college. But I'll save those for another day. :)
