RECOMMENDED PAIRINGS
Create your own cheese board at home, starting with Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp Cheddar.
Dark Chocolate, Cranberry & Apricot with Extra Sharp Cheddar

Bold Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp Cheddar paired with sweet apricot preserves, tart dried cranberries, and bittersweet dark chocolate provides the perfect flavor balance of sweet, salty, tangy, and rich. These bold accompaniments are matched exquisitely with Cabernet Sauvignon.

TIP
Dark chocolate is frequently listed by its cacao content. If you prefer a sweeter dark chocolate, opt for lower cacao content, around 60 to 65%. If you prefer a more bitter dark chocolate, choose something with over 70% cacao.
Cinnamon-Sugar & Walnut with Extra Sharp Cheddar

Take the traditional pairing of cheddar cheese and apples to another level with the addition of walnuts and cinnamon sugar. Dark red fruit flavors of Cabernet Sauvignon provide another classic match.

TIP
Cut your apples immediately before serving to avoid serving browned apples. Avoid using lemon to minimize browning as the lemon flavor could negatively affect the flavors of the pairing.
Apple, Roasted Fig & Almond with Extra Sharp Cheddar

Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp Cheddar cuts through the luxurious sweet flavors of marcona almonds, roasted figs, fresh-cut apples, and golden honey with delicious results. Pinot Noir provides a perfect contrast to this pairing with its bright berry notes.

TIP
To roast figs, cut in half and toss with olive oil and honey. Roast in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the figs soften and begin to caramelize.
