LOWVILLE, NY. Intensely spicy, locally-made cheddar with the extreme heat of scorpion peppers mixed throughout. Caution: very, very hot!
The Trinidad scorpion pepper is among the most piquant peppers in the world. It is indigenous to Trinidad and Tobago. The “scorpion” peppers are referred to as such because the pointed end of the pepper is said to resemble a scorpion’s stinger. The scorpion pepper was, for three years, ranked the most pungent (“hot”) pepper in the world according to Guinness World Records.
Cheddar cheese is a relatively hard, sometimes sharp-tasting, natural cheese. Originating in the English village of Cheddar in Somerset, cheeses of this style are produced beyond the region and in several countries around the world.
Lowville Producers Dairy is owned by 165 Dairy Families in Upstate New York between the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains and the Tug Hill Plateau. The cooperative has been in business since 1936. Its dairy farms produce over 310 million gallons of Grade A milk each year.
Please note: each brick of cheese produced by the Lowville Producers Dairy Co-op is approximately 10 ounces, but they are cut at a random weight, so some cheeses may weigh a little more or a little less than this average. By purchasing, you agree that you are paying for a random weight portion of cheese at a flat unit price.
