The height of the harvest season means more tomatoes, green peppers, cucumbers, greens, and summer squash! Sidi and Isha have a nice crop of broccoli ready to pick this week and Isho is picking the first of her lunchbox peppers. All of the farmers are struggling to keep their plants watered with the heat and lack of rain this season. We are all hoping for lots of rain soon!

Smoked Chili Cheddar, Grafton Village Cheese

Grafton’s Smoked Chili Cheddar is a rich cheese with no shortage of flavor. The cheddar is infused with habañero, jalapeño and pasilla peppers for the right balance of chili flavor and spice. The cheese is then cold-smoked over maple and hardwood chips, adding a woodsy depth to balance its bright spicy flavors. The dominating aromas of smoke and chili are grounded by a creamy texture and buttery flavors in this cheese, balancing yin with yang.

While some will snack on this cheddar straight-up on a cheese board, this is a cheese that can benefit from the right pairing. Mustard, sour cherry compote, or dilly beans are all excellent choices that balance and play off of the smoky and spicy flavors here. Smoked Chili Cheddar is very meltable; use it to add smoky spice to burgers, poutine or grilled cheese sandwiches.
