Cheddar

Cheddar cheese is one of the most popular English cheeses. Cheddar is best known for its bright yellow color and is often used as the slice of cheese on a hamburger, yet the cheese is much more than just a garnish. Because of its rich and nutty taste, Cheddar is also very suitable for eating with a drink. The crumbly texture makes many people believe that Cheddar is a hard cheese, but this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Cheddar

To ripen a Cheddar cheese you need a cool room. These cold temperatures ensure that the taste of the Cheddar cheese is enhanced. The longer the cheese is ripened, the spicier the cheese becomes. The aging process of Cheddar cheese usually takes between 3 months and 3 years. Which flavor you like better depends on your personal preference. It is therefore smart to try both a young and an old Cheddar cheese!

Cheddar cheese is named after the small village of Cheddar in Somerset, England. This is where they started producing Cheddar cheese. In this village you will also find the caves of Cheddar Gorge. These are limestone caves, in which the temperature is perfect for ripening the cheese. Many cheese manufacturers from this village choose to age their cheeses exclusively in the limestone caves. Incidentally, Cheddar is not a protected title and other countries are also allowed to produce their own Cheddar cheeses. Therefore, Ireland, Canada and Sweden have their own Cheddar cheese dairies.
