english Cheddar Cheese

Named after its Somerset, England, town of origin, cheddar is a versatile cheese that encompasses a range of flavors and textures, from sweet to savory, creamy to crumbly. The eponymous cheddaring process involves stacking curd loaves to remove excess whey, a technique that helps the cheese maintain its density and acidity. Variations on this method produce cheddars with unique flavors, like clothbound cheddar, Irish cheddar, and smoked cheddar.
