The Little Milk Co Mature Organic cheddar is made with raw unpasteurised organic milk, and matured for up to 36 months. Raw milk has not been exposed to the heat treatment required for full pasteurisation, raw milk cheeses retain more of the natural flavours and nutrients present in the milk used to make them, making it rich in antioxidants and Omega-3. Raw cheeses are generally more complex and have aromas that linger longer in the mouth, making them a cheese full of character giving this a creamy flavour, earthy tones, firm body and nutty aroma.
To enjoy the full flavour of our Mature cheddar take it out of the fridge at least an hour prior and let it get to an ambient temperature of 11 degrees celcius. On your Little Milk Company Cheese board this should be eaten after your milder cheddar and Brie but before the stronger vintages and rind washed cheeses. This cheese pairs well with a full-bodied red or Port.
Made with Raw Milk, this cheese is not safe to eat when pregnant.
