WILD GARLIC YARG
Wild Garlic Yarg from Lynher Dairies is a holder of a coveted Supergold at the World Cheese Awards, making it one of the judges’ top seventy cheeses in the world! It bursts with natural goodness. Made from creamy grass-rich milk and wrapped in the aromatic Allium ursinum leaves that arrive in the Cornish woodlands each spring, we say it whispers rather than shouts its name. Six weeks or so after wrapping, the ribbon-like leaves have darkened in colour. Wild garlic, or ramsons as they are often known, impart a gentle garlicky flavour as the rind develops. They also help the cheese mature, creating a slightly firmer texture than the crumbly nettled Yarg .It’s hard to believe but both Yargs are made in exactly the same way, until it comes to painting on the leaves. The striking difference in taste and texture is all down to nature.
Wrap in wax paper, store below 8 degrees, serve at room temperature. Wild Garlic Yarg from Lynher Dairies is suitable for vegetarians.
