A Little Something Cornish

Oh my word, and my wonderful Mother.

P1060802She brought me this delicious treat recently.

P1060801Cheese.

P1060799Cornish Yarg – see the nettle leaves with veins on the top…?

P1060800Totally drool-worthy.  The cheese is tangy, with an earthy flavour from the nettles applied to the edges.  The flavour is mild, strong flavours overwhelm it.  Bring to room temperature before eating, for the best flavour.

It seems – from internet research – that Yarg is not some Cornish word but the reverse surname of the chap who created it originally.  He he!  Mr Gray!

There is also a Yarg prepared with wild garlic leaves which I’ve tried – not so good in my opinion.

You like nettles with your cheese?
