Cheddar Cheese with Caramelized Onions
February 2, 2015—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Trader Joe's Cheddar Cheese with Caramelized Onions hails from Merry Old England, the birthplace of Cheddar. The cheesemaker is located west of London in the coastal county of Dorset. Cool breezes and plentiful moisture nourish the soil and create lush grasses on which black and white Holstein Frisian cows graze. These cows supply rich, creamy milk, which in turn enables the skilled cheesemaker to craft rich, creamy, complex Cheddar.
With that Cheddar as a canvas, the cheesemaker adds locally-sourced caramelized onions to the cheese. Aged for 15 months, the cheese is decidedly rich, with the sweet & savory onions adding an additional layer of flavor complexity not found in other Cheddars. It's rich, yet its mouth feel is somewhat delicate. It's creamy, with exceptionally pleasing texture. This is an impressive cheese to serve to guests - fresh fruit is a natural companion - it melts marvelously over a burger or in a grilled cheese sandwich, and it will magnify the magnificence of your mac & cheese masterpiece.
