Wild Garlic Yarg is a variant of Cornish Yarg cheese made by Michael and Margaret Horrell of Lynher Dairies Cheese Co., Cornwall, England from the pasteurised milk of Friesian cows.
It is a vegetarian, semi-hard cheese wrapped in the pungent Ramson leaves that flower in the surrounding woodlands. The leaves impart a gentle garlicky flavour on the finish and their moisture gives the cheese a slightly firm texture. This cheese goes through a slightly longer maturation process than the Cornish Yarg since the leaves are well-known for their medicinal and anti-bacterial properties. It also helps to slow down the process of mold development giving the rich and creamy cheese, a hint of garlic at the finish. The cheese is sold still wrapped in the leaves, under which the natural rind of the cheese is dotted with natural white, grey and pink moulds. The pale yellow cheese beneath the edible crust is creamy under its natural rind and slightly crumbly in the core.
This artisan cheese is a silver medal winner at the 2014 World Cheese awards.
