A deeply herbaceous flavored cheddar, seasoned with hand-rubbed Dalmatian sage and sage oil. This otherwise buttery and sweet cheese is a smooth palate to play up the earthy and vegetal aromas of sage, which are reminiscent of summer garden and autumn forest all at once.
Very meltable, this cheese adds the essence of sage in browned butter to any cooked dish. Liven up a grilled cheese, roasted turkey sandwich or muffaletta. For heartier fare, use Sage Cheddar to add earthy aromas to potato gratin, mushroom quiche, or macaroni & cheese.
Wine: Syrah, Zinfandel
Beer: Bock style beer
Lovely as a table cheese; serve with apples and plain crackers. In cooking, ideal with poultry dishes, in sandwiches, baked items like savory muffins, with eggs.
