So, what is extra mature cheddar cheese?

Extra mature cheddar cheese is a type of firm cow's milk cheese that has been aged for an extended period, typically over 18 months. The aging process concentrates the flavor and creates a crumbly texture with a sharp and tangy taste that lingers on the palate. This cheese has a distinctive yellow color and a complex depth of flavor, often described as nutty, earthy, or even slightly sweet. It's a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of dishes, from sandwiches and burgers to pastas and salads, adding a bold and intense flavor profile to any dish.
