Do YOU eat the rind on Brie?

  • k

I've had Brie in the past and at the whole piece I was given and enjoyed it very much. I recently bought a $6 or so Brie at Trader Joe's and after heating up, the middle was very good but the rind was kind of bitter, or off tasting.

Was I a chump for eating the rind at all, or are some rinds better than others?

Thanks,

Kevin

  1. I don't. husband does. just a matter of taste, I'd say.

          1. I used to chew the rind, but now I eschew the rind on brie.

            1. Yes, but not always. Usually, if the cheese is good (properly ripe), the rind is also good.
