Applewood (Cheddar)


A truckle of hard cheese made with cow's milk, made like cheddar. It has a pale golden paste and a rind coated with paprika. It is made by the Ilchester Cheese Company, Ilchester, Somerset. This cheese is made with pastuerised, whole milk. The curds are cooked and pressed. It is made with vegetable rennet so is suitable for vegetarians. This mild cheese was traditionally smoked over apple wood but nowadays the flavour is constructed by adding flavours to the cheese as it is no longer smoked.
