After pressing and brining, the Cornish Yarg cheese is wrapped in nettle leaves picked wild 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, these edible nettles impart a delicate, slightly mushroomy taste. The final product has an attractive, lacy pattern of leaves in blue and green, giving the finished cheese a very unique appearance.
