Grafton Village Cheese Co. Maple Smoked Cheddar
A New England classic. This young cheddar is cold-smoked over maple and hardwood for up to four hours, imparting the signature aroma and satisfying flavor of this classic cheese. Grafton’s Maple Smoked Cheddar has a mild, buttery body with heady aromas of campfire and smoked ham. A sweet finish recalls memories of toasted marshmallows. This is a versatile cheese that can occupy nearly any culinary slot. Pair with dried apricots, pickled ramps, and cured meats for a cheese board. Maple Smoked Cheddar is a natural pairing with mustard and can add depth to a ham sandwich; melts superbly in any heated preparation.
