Yorkshire Wensleydale

£4.15

Made in Hawes by Wensleydale creamery.

The cheese making began in 1150 when the French monks settled in wensleydale bringing with them the cheesemaking recipe. The recipe was then passed to farmers wives.

The first creamery was built in Hawes. Kit Calvert rallied to save the creamery from extinction during the depression. In 1966 Kit sold the creamery to the milk marketing board, which gave dairy crest the title.

Wensleydale creamery bought out the business in 1992. The dairy is based in Hawes and is surrounded by the Yorkshire dales national park.

The cheese is made using the traditional wensleydale recipe, using pasteurised milk, adding culture to ripen the cheese and rennet to set the cheese, the cheese is then cut which separates the curd from the whey, scolded and then salt is added to help separate the curd and whey once more. The cheese is crumbly in texture and yet creamy on the palette. The taste is sensational, it is slightly citrussy with a buttery finish.
