Cheddar cheese

What is cheddar cheese? About the ingredient cheddar cheese. Including 1,739 recipes with cheddar cheese, nutrition data, and where to find it.


Cheddar that is made in the traditional way, tends to have a sharp, pungent flavour, often slightly earthy.

Its texture is firm, with farmhouse traditional Cheddar being slightly crumbly, it should also, if mature, contain large crystals of calcium lactate - often precipitated when matured for times longer than 6 months.

Real Cheddar is never 'soapy', in texture or mouth-feel.

Cheddar is usually a deep to pale yellow (off-white) colour, but orange food colorings are sometimes used in industrial varieties of Cheddar style cheeses.
