Cheddar is synonymous with the West Country - where it was originally made in the fifteenth century - and is the world's favourite cheese. Carefully matured under controlled conditions for between nine and twelve months, this Mature Cheddar has a wonderful flinty texture and a distinctly savoury flavour with a refreshing sharpness. An unusual but rewarding accompaniment for this cheese is Guinness. A popular and equally enjoyable companion is a Cheese and Wine Shop Merlot.

How to Cut your Cheddar Truckle ...

The best way to cut is by using a cheese wire, or if you don`t have one of these to hand, dental floss is an easily obtainable alternative.

Step 1 Inspect your Truckle. If there are any Mould spots, using a clean Paper towel or similar, give the Cheese a good wipe to remove these. Recommend doing this over a tray, and it can collect any scrubbed off material. Discard this, and ensure your area is clean. If in doubt, spray with a food safe anti-bacterial disinfectant before proceeding to Step 2.

Entertaining (Using the Whole Cheese at once) Remove the cloth and cut the Truckle in half; if you want a neat cut, follow the procedure below for scribing and cutting.

Using The Truckle on more than one session; Lay the Truckle down on a clean surface.

Step 2 With a sharp knife; score around the cheese first, around 2.5cm from the top.

Neat Cut ... If you want a neat cut, use a ruler to make "guide marks" every 3 cm around the Truckles diameter. Using a sharp knife, and cutting to a depth of 3 mm, proceed to "scribe/cut" your truckles cloth, joing up the Guide Marks with a neat scribed cut; remember, you just need to cut the Cheese Coth wrap.

Step 3 Using the Cheese wire, or dental floss, place the Wire into the Cut and pull through cleanly. Remove this piece, or "The Lid" and cut around into wedges of your preferance.

Notes; If youre planning on keeping the Truckle and eating it bit by bit, keep the Truckle in its Cloth Coat for as long as possible, only removing a section as needed.

Store in a refrigerator and clingfilm cut surfaces, or apply the cap you removed earlier. If storing for any more than a couple of days, remove the cheese cloth entirely, as this can impart a musty taste to the cheese. 

Please Note; The Mould on the outside of the Cheese occurs naturally and is an integral part of this traditional cheese.

Simply the Best5 stars out of 55 stars out of 55 stars out of 55 stars out of 55 stars out of 5
Incomparable cheese and excellent and helpful service. What more could one ask? Perhaps that when the courier service managed to lose the cheese originally sent in the run up to Christmas, the immediate despatch of a replacement? That was no trouble at all and the replacement arrived within 24 hours. Thoroughly recommended.
