Way back to a few years ago, Mr. J and I took a long weekend up to Vermont. We explored lots of little towns and saw Lake Champlain. It was a great time. My favorite part of the trip was our jaunt to Cabot's Factory and Store. Cabot is the only block cheese I will just. Seeing where it was made and the mass production line was fascinating. We also enjoyed the store that had many varieties and products that are difficult to find else where. There were also lots and lots of samples.
One of the samples was for the Cheddar Powder Shaker. Powdered Cheddar Cheese in a jar. It was amazingly fantastic when we sampled in the store on top of popcorn. The only problem was that we didn't buy any at the time. We later found out that it is only available at that store or online.
I don't know how many times in the years that passed did Mr. J mention that cheddar powder. Finally this year at Christmas he said not only did he want some but he thought it would be a great idea to include a jar in some of our Christmas gifts.
Although my one and only thought for the cheddar powder is popcorn you can also use it on roasted and steamed veggies or as a soup topper. We had some on broccoli one night and it did add extra yumminess. My next trial will be on top of potatoes. I think it is going to be good.
I made sure that I had Mr. J in on the action and now he knows how to make homemade popcorn all on his own. I know this is going to be a common occurrence as long as we have the cheddar powder so it was important to share the knowledge.
Volia! Homemade Smart Food only a hundred times better all thanks to Cabot.
