Yancy’s Fancy Jalapeno & Peppadew Cheddar

All the way from the Big Apple, this aged cheddar is sure to be a summer crowd pleaser. Sharp, sweet and spicy, this cheddar is perfect for pretty much anything: mac and cheese, burgers and brats, cheese plates, grilled cheese… need we go on?

The unique addition of peppadews gives this cheese a special character. In case you were wondering what a peppadew is, here’s a brief history lesson:

Peppadew is the brand name of sweet piquanté peppers, grown in the Limpopo province of South Africa. Discovered in 1993 and introduced into the market a few years later, the name is derived from “Pepper” and “dew.” The peppers are small, red, and actually look like colorful little dew drops. The flavor is fairly sweet with a small hint of heat. Toss some jalapenos into the mix and you’ve got a sharp creamy cheddar with sweet heat that doesn’t miss a beat!

Rhyming aside, we chose this cheddar as June’s cheese of the month for its unique flavor profile and the quality of the cheese itself.

Stop into Glorioso’s and ask our cheese manager for a sample or dive in and buy a whole piece for only $5.49! You won’t believe how grate this cheese is!
