Yarg Help?
« on: May 26, 2013, 02:55:39 PM »
I have recently heard of the Cornish Yarg cheese and it has really interested me. Does anyone know how it's made? Which kind of culture and how long it's aged? I have wild garlic growing in my garden to wrap it with, since wild garlic varieties do exist. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

Tom :)

Sounds like a caerphilly,  aged in nettle leaves which have been frozen to remove the stingers, with variation wrapped in wild onion leaves.
