Six Little Gems
Gemma (Little Gem or Jewel)
Gemmas are our newest creations ... mild and creamy little discs of cheese made from cow's milk. They are crowned with both savory and sweet toppings.
They are festive looking and perfect for serving all together ... or individually. Each can add a spicy or sweet accent to another cheese selection. 1/3 pound each.
