Cheddar cheese with apple pie is an American classic, but why? Laura Werlin, author of several books, including The All American Cheese and Wine Book and Cheese Essentials, noted that the habit of pairing savory cheese with sweet accompaniments like jams, honeys, or chutneys gives you the classic savory and sweet contrast that people love in dishes such as ham with pineapple or duck with orange sauce.
Want to try this for yourself? You don’t want to just plop a dab of the same jelly you use on toast atop cheese; there are a few guidelines you’ll want to keep in mind.
