FEATURED CHEESE OF THE MONTH
SMOOTH & CREAMY WITH A SWEET FESTIVE SURPRISE
In celebration of Bandon’s long history with the cranberry industry (Bandon currently supplies 70% of juice cranberries to Ocean Spray) we’ve created this smooth and creamy cheddar with a sweet festive surprise. Our Cranberry Walnut Cheddar is a delight for your taste buds and brings the flavor of Fall to every bite.
HOW IT’S MADE
Cranberry Walnut cheddar is made by combining our 12month aged cheddar to give it a bolder cheddar flavor, a little Monterey Jack to add a silky, smooth texture, local cranberries for sweetness, and crisp walnuts to finish it off with a fantastic crunch.
Sweet with a slight cheddar bite. Silky smooth texture on the palate punctuated with the pleasant crunch of walnut pieces and sweet-tart cranberries.
WHAT TO PAIR IT WITH
The slight purple color and surprising sweetness makes our Cranberry Walnut Cheddar a fun addition to any cheese plate and the perfect go-to cheese for Turkey sandwiches.
Wines: When pairing this cheese, look for something that will cut the slight sweetness of the cheddar without overwhelming your palate.
White: Dry Riesling or Gewürztraminer, Viognier, Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Champagne or Dry sparkling wines
Red: Dry Rose, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, and Malbecs.
Beers: Think smooth, nutty and slightly sweet to accent the sweet walnut flavors in the cheddar.
Blonde Ales, Brown Ales, Kolsch, Brown Porters, and Sweet Stouts.
