High altitude flavor is packed into this little block of cheddar. Aged Cheddar is fully encrusted in freshly ground black pepper for a wonderful savory flavor and fantastic display when sliced.

Net Wt. 8 oz

How It's Made

We start with our 12 month Aged Cheddar and press it by hand into freshly ground pepper until the entire block is fully encrusted. Each block is then vacuum-sealed where the aging process can continue until purchase.

Flavor Profile

The mild sharpness and smooth, nutty creaminess of our 12 month Aged Cheddar provides a cooling contrast to the bold (more savory than spicy) ground pepper crust of this cheddar. The combination offers a beautiful blend of flavors that reminds us of cool winter nights in the Alpine forest. The soft texture of this mild cheddar makes it a true show-stopper when sliced on a cheese tray.

Pairings

Savory pepper notes lend this cheddar to complementing stronger flavors like cured meats, marinated veggies and roasted garlic. It's also a fantastic addition to omelets, baked potatoes, and savory puff-pastry appetizers.
