Let's dish about everyday cheddars--what's great, what do you avoid? And, for fun, if you have a favorite eating cheddar (in a higher price range), bring that on, too.
FAVORITE EVERYDAY CHEDDARS:
- Cabot (Hunter's Seriously Sharp--the one with red flannel on the label)--we use Cabot more often than not
- McAdam Sharp
I AVOID THESE CHEDDARS:
- Kraft (we picked it up last week as a quick grab and it's suboptimal, to say the least)
- Sargento (lacks flavor of good cheddars mentioned above)
SPECIAL CHEDDAR BUYS:
- It's been too long. Tell me about your favorites!
The beauty of Cabot and McAdam is not only the taste, but the price. I stock up like mad when shredded Cabot is 2/$4 at our local supermarkets. And I've picked up blocks of McAdam for dirt cheap at PriceRite, a local discount market. Let the cheesy discussion begin!
