Red Leicester Video Tutorial

Red Leicester is a semi-hard English cheese, similar to cheddar but with a moister, crumblier texture and a milder flavour. It is coloured with annatto, which gives it its distinctive deep orange hue. It was originally coloured with carrot or beetroot juice. It used to be called Leicestershire Cheese but came to be called Red Leicester. This was to distinguish it from "White Leicester," which was made to a national wartime recipe in the 1940s due to rationing.
