CHEDDAR (MILD, MATURE, VINTAGE)

What​ ​is​ ​the​ ​difference​ ​between​ ​Emborg’s​ ​different​ ​cheddar​ ​cheeses​ ​and​ ​their​ ​serving suggestions? 

Emborg’s​ ​Mild​ ​Cheddar​ ​has​ ​a​ ​traditional,​ ​smooth​ ​and​ ​creamy​ ​flavour.​ ​Its​ ​smooth​ ​and​ ​firm​ ​texture  makes​ ​it​ ​perfect​ ​for​ ​cooking​ ​and​ ​baking​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​for​ ​using​ ​in​ ​toasts,​ ​sandwiches​ ​and​ ​burgers. Our​ ​Mature​ ​Cheddar​ ​has​ ​a​ ​more​ ​distinctive​ ​rich​ ​and​ ​sweet​ ​flavour,​ ​owe​ ​to​ ​its​ ​10​ ​months​ ​of maturing.​ ​Our​ ​Vintage​ ​Cheddar​ ​has​ ​matured​ ​for​ ​16​ ​months,​ ​which​ ​gives​ ​it​ ​a​ ​robust​ ​and​ ​full​ ​bodied  flavour​ ​and​ ​makes​ ​it​ ​drier​ ​as​ ​well​ ​as​ ​more​ ​crumbly.​ ​Both​ ​the​ ​Mature​ ​Cheddar​ ​and​ ​the​ ​Vintage Cheddar​ ​can​ ​easily​ ​be​ ​enjoyed​ ​on​ ​their​ ​own,​ ​for​ ​example​ ​served​ ​with​ ​nuts​ ​and​ ​crackers,​ ​or​ ​in​ ​a​ ​salad  for​ ​a​ ​more​ ​flavourful​ ​salad​ ​experience. 

   

Where is your Emborg Cheddar produced?

Our Emborg Cheddar cheeses are all made in England by using a classic and original British recipe with milk from grass fed cows.

Why is there white substance on the surface of Mature/Vintage? Is it still safe for consumption?

It is calcium lactate which is naturally occurring in aged cheese. It’s perfectly safe to eat. It forms during the natural aging process and it usually means that this cheese is well-aged and flavourful.

What is the difference between Mild, Mature & Vintage Cheddar?

Mild - A traditional, smooth and creamy flavour
Mature - 10 months Cheddar with a distinctive rich and sweet flavour

How long should I keep it once it has been opened?

Once the cheese is exposed to air, mold and dehydration may occur. Store in air tight container once opened and it’s best to consume as soon as possible.
