Red Leicester is a mellow cheese with a crumbly, granular texture. It gets its bright red color from the addition of annatto, which is ground achiote seed from the annatto tree. Red Leicester is a rather young cheese, as it is only aged for 10 to 12 weeks. As it ripens, it develops a distinct nuttiness and faint lemony finish that separates it from all other English cheeses.
