The natural orange colouring in Cheddar comes from annatto.


Ingredients

1 medium onion, chopped
1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
2 1/2 cups (625 mL) pureed squash
2 1/2 cups (625 mL) chicken broth
1/2 tsp (2 mL) dried thyme
1/2 tsp (2 mL) dried rosemary
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 Pinch of ground cumin

1 cup (250 mL) Canadian Old Cheddar cheese, grated

Preparation

In a heavy saucepan, sauté onion in butter until it's transparent. Add broth, squash and spices. Salt and pepper to taste.
