Maple Smoked Cheddar
Your search for a smoked cheddar where the cheddar is as important as the smoke is over. We make our cheddar by hand, the old-fashioned way, and cold-smoke it over maple chips for up to four hours. An iconic Vermont product, this cheese is made from fresh milk collected from small, local farms.
Our maple-smoked cheddar has an inviting appearance: smooth, the color of light brown sugar, with the aroma of a smoldering campfire. Its flavor is certainly influenced by the maple smoke, but in a pleasing, not overpowering way. Expect sweet, buttery, savory flavors with a bright, lingering finish and subtle grassy notes. Not too sharp, it’s a versatile cheese that fits in well on a Ploughman’s Lunch, melted on a sandwich, cooked into a quiche, or chop into cubes for a secret ingredient in your next Waldorf salad.
