One of the most popular in our collection, this spread is prepared with a local old cheddar and a blend of spices. Delicious in an omelet, on a burger and potatoes or added to any recipe that calls for cheddar. Of course, we love it on its own with a crispy cracker. It certainly makes a wonderful addition to any cheese and charcuterie platter.
