Cornish Yarg cheese is all about the nettles! The team forage the nettles from Cornish hedgerows and then freeze them so that they last all year round. By the time they brush the leaves on, the sting has left them but the flavour hasn’t. The cheese develops a dusting of bloomy white moulds across its leafy rind which helps it to mature.
What is Yarg Cheese like? Wrapped in nettle leaves Yarg, a Cornish cheese, is hand made with a mild slightly mushroomy flavour.
Where’s it from? Made by the Gray family (get it? Yarg is Gray backwards) at the Lynher Dairies cheese company
Packaging: 1kg whole truckle wrapped in nettles. Suitable for vegetarians.
Yarg is also available as a 1kg whole truckle with wrapping of nettles.
You can also buy Yarg cheese as part of The Best of British Tasting Box and The Best of British X-Large Box. Both of these British boxes contain cheeses that will alleviate even the most melancholic homesickness.. They are perfect for those who live abroad and want a taste of home. Each classic cheese is robust enough for transit and deserves its place in the pantheon of Great British Cheeses.
Other British Cheeses to try:
Sparkenhoe is a truly authentic Red Leicester with a beautifully nutty taste: a legendary cheese made from an old recipe.
Golden Cenarth is somewhere between an Epoisses and a Vacherin Mont D’Or. Bake it in much the same way as the latter to make a fantastic starter for two!
Montgomery’s Cheddar is a perfect artisan mature farmhouse cheddar made with traditional methods with a rich and unique taste.
Recipes using Yarg:
These cheese stuffed mushrooms have a hint of garlic, but you could also add herbs, sun-dried tomatoes or bacon if you’re not in a rush to get them in your mouth like we are!
These breakfast muffins are a favourite for a certain body coach, as well as those who follow a keto diet. Great for on the go, and super tasty too. You can actually use any cheeses you like in this, perfect for using up left overs. We’ve used Yarg for ours because it crumbles nicely and adds a lovely flavour dimension.
