Peanutbutter cheese Vintage Postcards

This lovely goat herding vintage postcard siren would like you to try a true Corsican delicacy. This cheese was banned in France for being too ripe, stinky, and putrid. But you are adventurous and enjoy trying new and exotic things, right? U casgiu merzu translates as 'rotten cheese.' One leaves a nice fresh goat cheese in open air during the 'ripening' process.

The idea is to attract as many flies as possible. The cheese becomes a cradle for eggs and the maggots which will aid the cheeses eventual fermentation process. A true U casgiu merzu may writhe with life for up to ten years before consumption. It has the consistency of peanut butter and is best... left to the locals. Yuck!

Moral: Don't trust lascivious goat herders who offer you cheese! Stick to collecting vintage poscards. The smell won't haunt you for the rest of your days.
