Horseradish Pecan Cheddar is one of several types of cheddar cheese that we carry.
Cheddar cheese originated in Somerset in England in the 12th century, in a village named named “Cheddar”.
Local caves provided an ideal environment in which the cheese was aged. As cheddar cheese has grown in popularity and spread to other regions, variations have arisen in how it is made and aged. Today, cheddar is one of the most popular cheeses in America.
The time-tested process of making cheddar cheese, which is the approach we use, invokes a step known as “Cheddaring.” After the curds are cut and partially drained, they are compressed into slabs and stacked one on another so that gravity and pressure can aid in squeezing out excess whey. The slabs are then cut into curds to be salted and pressed into molds.
Once the cheese wheels have been made, we age the cheese in our underground cheese cave, which is climate-controlled and gives ideal conditions for aging cheese.
Flavorful when eaten alone or with crackers.
When sliced into small chunks, it imparts a pleasantly tangy flavor to soups.
