Cooking Hints for Cabot Light Cheddar

Heat & Melt

Use lower heat and give it a bit more time for the best melting results (think slow & low for grilled cheese.)

Zap & Ooze

When microwaving, cook covered on a low setting, rotate often and stir frequently to get perfect oozing goodness.

Shred & Grate

When finely grated, Cabot's Sharp Extra Light Cheddar makes a fantastic substitution for other hard cheeses like Parmesan and Romano due to similar low moisture content.

Savor the Flavor

Cabot's Light Cheddars have won many top awards for taste. Using pure, fresh, wholesome milk and a carefully monitored aging process results in a superior Cheddar flavor that instantly adds depth and delight to any dish.


I was one of the 500 winners for the 100 snack size bars of Cabot Light Cheddar. I took these to my 7-year-old daughters class for her Halloween party and they were a hit with all of her classmates. Thank You Cabot.
