Over the weekend I discovered a true gem in Irish Cheddar Cheese. We were at Dalriada Festival in the grounds of Glenarm Castle and one of the exhibitors was Jim from Old Irish Creamery. They are based just outside Limerick.
They have been producing cheddar for over a century and it has stood the test of time. The extra mature is divine and Jim was telling me that they have won many awards and have a great emphasis of flavoured cheddars.
I was fortunate to taste many different ones. The most innovative and tasty ones being strawberry, curry, walnut and stout as well as classic ones like chives and garlic, to name but a few. Jim gave me a selection to try out.
They are definitely worth hunting out!!!!
