A crumbly texture and a mild fresh acidity, Applebys Red Cheshire is made using vegetarian starter culture with annato added to the unpasturised milk to add the gentle red colour. The cheese is cloth bound and matured for six months giving it a light, salty flavour and moist, crumbly texture. Cheshire is Britain's oldest cheese, dating back to Roman times and mentioned in the Domesday Book. The Appleby family are one of the true cheesemaking familys of the Great Britian with Lance and Lucy Appleby awarded MBEs for their services to cheesemaking in Shropshire, in 2001. They officially started making their own cheese in 1952 but had always been involved throughout their early lives. Now second and third generation Applebys are involved in the business and are committed to making the cheese by the traditional methods that gives us such a wonderful product to sell. A half of a Red Cheshire is a great base to a small wedding cake as it gives height, or if you're looking for a little less, a quarter is about a 6cm high circle. Team it with a Cashel Blue and you're on your way to a great stack! Red Cheshire dimensions: Width 21cm x Height 6cm for a quarter, 12 cm for a half, 24cm for a whole cheese Cow's milk, unpasteurised, veg
