Jensen’s Very Old Cheddar

Photo by canadiancheese

This is one of the most deliciously complex Canadian cheddars I have ever tried. It starts out with an aroma of smokey bacon but upon first bite all I could taste was a refreshing pang of grapefruit ending in light dried fruit notes. It’s firm but melts on the tongue and has a lovely sharp bite. This would pair well with chutney and cured meats. I enjoyed it on a sandwich with polish kielbasa when I was short on time and needed a protein fill.

The Jensen family is now training their son to become the third generation cheese maker since their inception in 1925.
