While in England visiting a farm, famous for their flavored cheese artistry, we were introduced to this Cheddar Cheese with Caramelized Onions. Rich and creamy, sweet and savory, it was memorable. Mind you, we already carried Cheddar with Caramelized Onions, so we weren’t “looking.” But in a bite, we knew; if we want to offer the best of the best (and we do), it was time for a change in our onion-imbued Cheddars.
Our new Cheddar Cheese with Caramelized Onions is crafted for us on an established estate, idyllically situated between the rolling Dorset Downs and the Jurassic Coast – an international world heritage site, lush with pastures. With more than 40 years of traditional cheese making experience, a famed farm on this estate transforms rich, creamy milk from local grazing herds (within a 30 mile radius) into beautiful, full-bodied farmhouse Cheddar. Inspired by a classically British ploughman’s lunch pairing—cheese & chutney—these blending artists mix caramelized onion marmalade into the Cheddar, giving it a balanced sweet-savory bite and pleasing onion aroma. It’s firm, creamy and adorned throughout with bits of onion. It’s memorable.
Trader Joe’s Cheddar Cheese with Caramelized Onions is excellent served simply – cut and accompanied by crackers or small slices of rustic bread. It also melts exceptionally well, which makes it a fun topping for burgers, grilled cheeses or pizzas. We also enjoy the sweetness it brings to cream sauces.
Since we want to offer the best of the best for the best price (that’s value), we’re selling Trader Joe’s Cheddar Cheese with Caramelized Onions for $8.99 per pound.
