Cheddar cheese is a type of cheese that is usually hard and has a pale yellow to an off-white color and sometimes has a sharp taste. It originated in the English village of Cheddar in Somerset. Cheddar cheese is one of the most popular types of cheese around the world.
The process of making Cheddar cheese includes an additional step called cheddaring. After heating, the curd is kneaded with salt, then cut into cubes to drain the whey, then stacked and turned. The strength of the Cheddar cheese can vary from mild to extra-mature, sometimes called vintage, which needs to be matured for up to 15 months.
