Applewood is a traditional farmhouse Cheddar from Ilchester Cheese Company. An English cheese, it also goes by the name of Applewood smoked cheddar. This dense semi-hard cheese was first invented in 1965 in Somerset, England.
Applewood is not actually smoked but given an artificial smoky flavouring with a dusting of paprika for a golden-amber appearance.
Made using traditional Cheddar, Applewood has a delicate smoky flavour throughout and a lovely smooth texture. A truly innovative British Cheddar and a family favourite.
