Pinconning Cheese



Pinconning Cheese is world famous -- in Michigan, at least.

This is an aged, semi-firm cheese made from whole cow's milk. Its somewhere between Cheddar and Colby, but unlike Colby it can be aged.

It comes in varying degrees of sharpness, depending on how long it has been aged -- it can be aged up to 10 years.

History Notes

It is made according to a recipe formulated by a Dan Horn around 1915.

Literature & Lore

Ernie Harwell, who broadcast games by radio from Tiger Stadium in Detroit, Michigan, recalls that the mayor of Pinconning once brought a wheel of the cheese to the game to promote it. While trying to get in the elevated radio booth, the mayor lost his grip on the wheel of cheese, and it splattered on everyone in the seats below.


Pinconning also produces, unofficially of course, a grade of marijuana known as "Pinconning Parilyzer", which many people prize as much if not more than the cheese.
