Origin of cheddar cheese and interesting facts
This more specific type of cheese originates from the eponymous village of Cheddar in the Somerset area, where the beautiful Cheddar Gorge is located. The gorge is the longest in Britain – over 6 km.
The history of cheddar cheese dates back to the 12th century. In 1170, King Henry II bought 4,640 kg of cheddar cheese from Somerset.
Cheddar is the most popular cheese in the UK and occupies 51% of the annual cheese market in the country. It is also the second most popular cheese in the United States after mozzarella, with an average annual consumption of 4.5 kg per capita.
What distinguishes cheddar from other cheeses is the way it is made. Once the milk is heated and thickened, it is cut and arranged. He then turns periodically. This process is known as cheddaring.
Cheddar matures for at least 3 to 6 months, preferably one and a half to two years. Its soft, rich taste becomes more intense over time, but should not be bitter.
