The Snowdonia Red Devil is a variant of the wonderful Red Leicester cheese. Red Leicester is a cheddar-like cheese with a crumbly texture. It is subtle when compared to the flavor profile of cheddar, but typically reaches maturity a lot quicker than its boisterous cousin. The cheese is infused with annatto extract, giving the cheese its orange characteristic.
Moving back to the Red Devil, this interesting cheese is actually the best-selling cheese of the Snowdonia Cheese Company. This wonderful variant of the Red Leicester is expertly crafted, and then encrusted with chili flakes to give the wonderful cheese a welcome, spicy kick.
Red Devil is one of those unique cheeses that should be enjoyed on its own thanks to the spicy characteristics of the chili crust. But, like Red Leicester, the cheese is 35% fat, making it the perfect, melty cheese. Try lacing your next mac and cheese, or grilled cheese sandwich with this beautifully spicy cheese.
Cheeses (except brined ones in jars) should be stored in the crisper or the butter drawer of a refrigerator, not on the shelves themselves. This is to help regulate their temperature and humidity levels—and prevents the formation of mold. Once opened, they should not be kept in their original packaging. Soft cheeses with delicate rinds need to breathe, so they are best placed in glass containers lined with paper towels to absorb extra moisture. Leave the lid open a tiny bit for air to circulate and don’t forget to write up a label with the date you first opened the package. Kindly pay attention to the best before date label when you receive your cheese. Consume prior to date indicated.
