Often considered to be the national cheese of Cornwall, Cornish Yarg is based on a 13th Century recipe first made by the Grays on their farm near Bodmin Moor.
Its semi-hard texture is often compared to that of Caerphilly, though the outer layer is distinctly creamier, and its unique feature is the edible jacket of nettle leaves. This gives the cheese a herby flavour as well as a very attractive appearance.
Rich, milky and slightly sweet undertones.
The texture is crumbly but moist.
