Calcium Hero of the Dish | Alexandrina's Fresh Cheddar Curd either plain or chilli

Alexandrina's Fresh Cheddar Curd is simply a fresh, unmatured curd of the Cheddar cheese. This cheese is made in an open-vat using a traditional Cheddaring method, whereby the Cheddar Curd is stretched, milled and salted before being pressed in a special hoop. Alexandrina’s Cheddar Curd has a pleasant mild, salty and savoury flavour, with a unique squeaky texture. Not only is Cheddar a cheese name, the term “cheddaring” describes the stretching step in production, where the large slabs of fresh curd are cut and stacked, and regularly hand-turned, to ensure maximum extraction of whey and even-development of acidity. Alexandrina Cheese are among only a handful of Cheddar producers in Australia today who include this important Cheddaring process. Serve this cheese | on a platter with any locally sourced accompaniment, or fry on a low-heat as you would fry a halloumi-style cheese. You can also use Alexandrina's Fresh Cheddar Curd to make Poutine, a Canadian dish of French-fries and cheese curds topped with a brown gravy. Construct this playful summer cheese platter for family and friends, using Fresh Cheddar Curd as the centrepiece. 33.8 % minimum fat | available in 250g or 500g bag.

Top Tip | Make sure you have at least a few extra bags of Fresh Cheddar Curd on hand. Best to have a refillable wreath and really get the party started! Our top tip for this year is to have one of each

Foodie Fact | When you bite into Alexandrina's Fresh Cheddar Curd, you might notice that you get a squeak on your teeth, that is the tough mesh that resists you biting through it. That resistance cause the curd to squeak because its rubbing across your teach. And with age, even just one week old curd - that calcium dissolves from the protein, making the protein softer.
