No, cheddar should be a nice yellowy colour! We're spoilt for choice here as I live near the home of the cheese - some good local producers.

Because I never saw it until I was in my twenties and rarely see it nowadays red Cheddar always seems like a bit of an unnatural act to me,like it should taste ,or not taste much at all, like Red Leicester.

Depends how much Port you put in it or have drank. :-D :-D :-D

Red Leicester is not red Cheddar.I don't like Leicester but I love mature Cheddar. They both get their colour from annato dye,as does Double Gloucester.

I just wondered why the dye needed to be added for the northern market.

Red Leicester has a more lovely creamier mature taste than yellow/white cheddar which can be a bit bland sometimes ,,,,,and is served more often than not on a cheese board then white.

Island's been a-googling again :-0

Funny you mentioning Cheddar, I got some yesterday and I have never noticed the warning on the back label before, it says...

Allergy Warning : this product contains "cows milk".

I thought all Cheddar cheese did :-S


Wend Report 11 Dec 2012 20:48

Cheddar is Cheddar - I expect it all tastes the same, whatever colour it is.


Sharron Report 11 Dec 2012 20:30

I did buy some red cheddar in Aldi this week which was most unusual this far south.


Island Report 11 Dec 2012 20:26

I've only seen yellow cheddar :-S


Sharron Report 11 Dec 2012 20:24

Sorry,I have finally been making the Christmas cakes.

What I mean is that Cheddar in the south is generally white whereas,in the north, it seems to have anatto added to it.

The first time I stayed in Yorkshire I thought I was being served Red Leicester.

In my house, cause tends to be mold.......doesn't taste much different though .... :-D :-S


Wend Report 11 Dec 2012 18:36

You don't mean to tell me Sharron that a cheese sandwich that you make before a journey up north lasts all the way to Nottingham, surely?


Kay???? Report 11 Dec 2012 18:33
