Cheddar Cheese


Prior to 1850, nearly all the cheese produced in the United States was Cheddar.

It has a rich, nutty flavor that becomes increasingly sharp with age.¬†Cheddar’s smooth, firm texture becomes more granular and crumbly as it ages, as well.

Traditionally, the color of the exterior wax denotes the flavor or age of the cheese: clear suggests mild, red suggests medium, and black suggests sharp.

HEALING TIP: Because cheese is essentially milk that is condensed it is important to choose cheddar cheese made from organic milk, free from hormones.
