All Star Red Wax Hoop Cheddar ~16oz
Prior to 1850, nearly all cheese produced in the United States was cheddar. Cheddar production in Wisconsin began in the mid-1800s and by 1880, more cheddar was produced in Wisconsin than any other cheese variety. In the southern United States, a 22 pound traditional Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese wheel (hoop cheese), would be displayed on a counter and wedges would be cut from the wheel.
The traditional golden hue of colored cheddars comes from the addition of annatto, a tasteless, odorless vegetable dye made from the seed of the annatto plant. As cheddar ages, its texture, flavor and performance change: mild cheddar has a firm, elastic texture. It slices, shreds and melts well. Made with pasteurized cow's milk this young cheddar is semi-soft and mild making it a great addition to any cheese plate or recipe, sure to please any holiday guest.
