Cornish Yarg

Cornwall, England Pasteurised Cow’s Milk

Cornish Yarg was first produced in the early 1980’s on Bodmin Moor by a farmer named Alan Gray who found a seventeenth century recipe for nettle wrapped cheese in an attic and decided to give it a go. The leaves, which attract naturally occurring moulds, are brushed onto the cheese in concentric circles. As the cheese matures, the edible nettle rind imparts a delicate, mushroomy taste and develops its unique bloomy white appearance. Wonderfully mild, fresh and crumbly with notes of asparagus. Fabulous with Perry or a fruity white wine. Drop cubes of Yarg into a steaming bowl of root vegetable soup for a supper time treat.
