Cornish garlic yarg cheese

  • In stock

Weight: 200g

Product description

The nettle-wrapped Cornish Yarg, made from pasteurised cows’ milk, is a fresh, lemony cheese. It is creamy under its natural rind and slightly crumbly in the core. 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.

Cornish Yarg comes from a small dairy at Ponsanooth in mid Cornwall, but is sold all over the world. The nettle-covered Cornish Yarg has been in production for thirty years and is made by a small team of 30 people, from cheese-makers to nettlers and packers; most of them live in the immediate rural catchment area around the dairy.
