How to combine cheeses and spreads?
With so many delicious spreads to choose from, pairing cheeses with jam, mustard and honey is a great way to enjoy the great taste of all the ingredients.
Condiments and spreads work well with cheeses because they naturally balance the slight saltiness of the cheese with a bit of sweetness, creating exciting and unexpected flavors and textures. The goal is combinations that complement or contrast, but never overlap, so you achieve flavor harmony with each delicious bite.
White cheddar + raspberry jam
The mildly hot and creamy texture of the cheddar is perfectly combined with the sweetness of the raspberry marmalade. Spread raspberry jam on a piece of cheddar and serve with crackers for an appetizer that’s easy, quick, and sweet.
Habanero cheddar + maple syrup
The intense spiciness of the Habanero cheddar is offset by the caramelized sweetness of the maple syrup. Place a slice of spicy cheddar on top of a saltine cracker, then drizzle everything with a little maple syrup and chopped cilantro for fresh, sweet and tangy flavors.
Alpine cheese + balsamic vinegar
The taste of Alpine cow cheese inspired by Switzerland and its slightly crumbly texture are perfectly complemented by the sharp fruity touch of balsamic vinegar. Mix chunks of alpine cheese with your favorite spring lettuce mix and then drizzle it all over with a good balsamic vinegar.
Yellow cheddar + blackberry jam
The rich, mild flavor of the yellow cheddar is perfectly balanced by the tart sweetness of the blackberry jam. Fill mini puff pastry cups with blackberry jam, top with a slice of cheese and bake.
Provolone + Dijon mustard
Enhance your sandwich with Provolone, Dijon mustard, cured meats and your favorite vegetables.
