Cornish Yarg Truckle

Yarg is such an really tasty cheese but its hard to not focus on its looks but it really has a great taste as well: very creamy and zesty.

This delicious hard cheese from Cornwall is deliciously creamy under the rind and slightly crumbly in the core.

It has a young, fresh, slightly tangy taste and is made by hand in open round vats.

The cheese is wrapped in nettle leaves picked wild from neighbouring properties and frozen for use throughout the year. The leaves are carefully brushed onto the cheese in a traditional pattern and they attract wonderful natural occurring moulds of various colours, which help the cheese ripen.

As the cheese matures, the (edible) nettles give the cheese a mild slightly mushroomy taste.

The final product has an attractive, lacy pattern of leaves in blue and green, giving the finished cheese a wonderful appearance.

This cheese is made by the Gray family (get it? Yarg is Gray backwards!!) at their Lynher Dairies cheese dairy.
