Compare the tastes and it is hard to believe that nettled Cornish Yarg and Wild Garlic Yarg are made to an identical recipe. The difference comes at the point we paint on the leaves. The striking contrast in taste and texture is entirely down to nature. The aromatic wild garlic from Cornish woodlands each spring, selecting every one by hand.
Lynher Dairies team of nettlers wrap the leaves around the bare truckle in a ribbon pattern. Six weeks later, the wild garlic has created a slightly firmer texture than the nettles. They darken in colour and impart a gentle garlicky flavour so we like to say Wild Garlic Yarg whispers rather than shouts its name.
Please allow for 10% variants on the weight as all of our cheeses are hand made and cut.
