Our 6 month aged cheddar, soaked in award winning California North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon, makes this distinctive cheese purple on the outside, creamy on the inside, and most appealing. It won a gold medal in 2003, 2004 and 2006 at the Los Angeles County Fair and a silver medal at the American Cheese Society in 2004 and in 2005. It tastes as good as it looks. In addition to the obvious use for hors d’oeuvres, Purple Moon can also be easily melted, and used in cooking. Melted on crackers or baguettes, it becomes a unique appetizer, or can be added to omelets and quesadillas, or in grilled sandwiches. Pair it with Cabernet of course, or even a Chardonnay!
