King Island Smoked Cheddar

Definition: A process during cheesemaking when blocks of curds are piled on top of each other to expel moisture. The curds are then put through a mill and ground into small pieces then poured into molds and pressed. This gives cheese a dense, often crumbly texture. This process is used to make cheeses like Cheddar, Cheshire and Lancashire.
