Pickled Blueberry & Vache

Pickled Blueberry & Vache

Featuring two freshly minted Good Food Award-winning products — Bow Hill’s Organic Pickled Heirloom Blueberries and Samish Bay Cheese’s Organic Vache — this quick and simple dish is sure to impress and delight! The herbed vache and the brined sweetness of the pickled blueberries come together in a grilled cheese that is light, fresh, and delicious. Your first crisp bite will show you that these are not odd bedfellows, but a marriage made in heaven. To keep it all local, try using a loaf from Breadfarm, local herbs (we like Harmony Fields’), and Golden Glen Creamery’s butter.


Skagit Valley Grilled Cheese with Pickled Blueberries & Vache

Yield: 4 sandwiches | Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 5 minutes


8 large slices of bread (the heartier the crust the better)

5 ounces of Samish Bay Cheese Organic Vache (alternatives: chèvre or cream cheese)

½ cup Bow Hill Organic Pickled Heirloom Blueberries

1 sprig each of thyme, basil, and parsley



Pull the leaves from the stems of the herbs and chop. Fold into the vache.

Spread herbed vache evenly on all eight slices of bread and top four with 2 tablespoons of pickled blueberries. Place the other four slices on top and smash together gently. Butter the outsides of the bread and toast in a skillet until crisp, browned, and the cheese is warm. Slice each sandwich in half and serve.
