When it comes to a totally unique cheddar, there are not enough superlatives to describe the superb flavour of BLACK RIVER CHEESE COMPANY LTD.'s Maple Cheddar.
A superior blend of medium-aged, fine artisan cheddar and Prince Edward County's pure maple syrup, this deliciously tantalizing cheddar sets one's taste buds alight. The savoury tones of the cheddar gently meld with the delicate sweetness of the maple syrup creating an almost ambrosial taste sensation - one that leaves you craving for more as it melts in your mouth.
Much like a premium aged cheddar in texture, our Maple Cheddar is definitely a crowd pleasing addition to any occasion with its special, sweet-savoury taste. Paired with a fine Chardonnay or as a bold contrast to a rich Shiraz, it makes for a delightful appetizer, one that will have your guests succumbing to its almost addictive flavour.
Often used by some of Canada's renowned chefs, this delightful cheddar lends itself to a wealth of culinary creativity. Take an old fashioned grilled cheese sandwich to new heights using Black River Cheese's Maple Cheddar, but just don't stop there! Put a new twist on Eggs Benedict or Eggs Florentine using a Maple Cheddar sauce in lieu of the traditional Hollandaise. Toss it into a Waldorf salad. Make cheese bread with it. Serve it with peach or apple pie. It's culinary uses are as great as your imagination!
