Parmigiano and aged gouda
I really, really should know this, but how do I search for a thread on HO please?
Good, isn’t it? However, I don’t think I could tell it from a good cheddar if I was blindfolded.
That one was my answer to the question in the thread title “What’s a good cheese with crystals?” I discovered it just a few weeks ago. I think I could identify it blindfolded, at least with the cheddars I have in my refrigerator at the moment.
My answer to the question in the original post “What is your favorite cheese with crystals?” is Parmigiano Reggiano. That’s my favorite cheese even taking into account cheeses without crystals, too.
I’m not particularly fond of cheese with crystals, so don’t buy it too often. But the Red Fox, mentioned upthread is good. It’s readily available in British supermarkets.
Although a Red Leicester, it’s not made in the county but in Whitchurch , Shropshire. Belton Farm makes a wide range of regional cheeses - Cheshire, Double Gloucester, Sage Derby, etc.
If you’re in to Red Leicester, although no crystals, look out for Sparkenhoe which is the best of the genre I know. If you come across the Vintage version, even better. That’s aged for 18 months, as opposed to the 6 for the ordinary cheese, so much drier.

I was going to say the same thing , but I chose purple
Nice that we can link to the search easily, too.
So many ways to sort and filter, not that I’ve used too many of them yet
You wonderful woman!
In spite of all the time I’ve spent here, I’d never noticed that (and I can’t, for the life of me, explain why I’ve not noticed it.).

If you only knew how hilarious my colleagues at work would find it that I am somehow a technology guru this morning.
I love Parrano, which is an aged Gouda. It’s become harder to find near me, though.
Where are you, and what are your favorites?
Of course! Thank you.
Cabot clothbound cheddar from Jasper Hill. My husband’s absolute favorite!

I think you’ll fit in very well. First post - cheese. Yep, our sort of poster.

Double recommend on the Seaside Cheddar that @GretchenS recommended (which @Harters cannot get in the U.K., at least he couldn’t when I last gave him some to try - looks like it’s available in Whole Foods in the U.K. now, per a quick Google). It goes by several different names, depending on the store/supermarket that sells it. Gretchen, I just saw it in Market Basket last weekend - forget the name and didn’t take a picture of the label, but the name is similar to Seaside. Unless it is called Seaside and my brain is just blanking out. (Highly possible)
And I love a really good aged Parm-Reg with the crystals. I’ve not had a Manchego with crystals - will now have to look in Wegmans next time I go.
