Cornish Yarg

£2.69£26.94

A nettle-wrapped cheese with a clear, fresh flavour.

The cheese is partly based on a Caerphilly recipe and is covered in edible stinging nettles (Urtica dioica). When the nettles are a vivid, vibrant green, they are hand-picked from the Cornish countryside and frozen for usage throughout the year. Once the cheeses have been taken from their moulds and brined, a team of nettlers applies the leaves in exquisite concentric circles. The leaves protect the cheese while enabling it to breathe and attract the specialised moulds that promote the development of the lovely almost lace-like look of the rind. This, in turn, begins to deteriorate the inside of the cheese, albeit the texture remains softly crumbly.
