Over the Moon "Red Planet" cheese
Made from high quality cow’s milk.
This cheese is similar to cheddar excepting that it is slightly moister and has a slightly higher acidic tang. With a firm texture yet slightly softer and creamier than cheddar.
Red Planet cheese is slightly flaky which makes it more suited to cutting into cubes than slicing. This flakiness becomes more pronounced as the cheese ages in their cellar. The orange (not really red) colour comes from a natural colouring called annatto.
This cheese is ideal for grating, grilling and as part of a cheese platter.
