Carr Valley makes a white cheddar that is smoked over applewood and hand rubbed with paprika. The Apple Smoked Cheddar has an orange appearance, an ivory-white interior and a supple, moist texture that is typical of Wisconsin Carr Valleys cheddar. The flavors of this gourmet cheese are a balance of the sweetness of milk, light smoke and the spiciness of the paprika. Carr Valley's Apple Smoked Cheddar Cheese won a first place at the 2005 American Cheese Society in its category and a third place at the 2006 World Cheese Competition. Furthermore a 3rd Place at the 2006 and a 2nd place in the Smoked Cheddars Category at the 2009 and 2012 American Cheese Society Competition. We cut and wrap this American gourmet cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound. read more...
