Sparkenhoe Blue Shropshire 250g

£8.95
Sparkenhoe Shropshire BlueMade by Will Clark in LeicestershireJo and David Clarke have built an enviable reputation for making the only raw milk, clothbound, farmhouse Red Leicester in the UK.  Now their son, Will, has returned to the family farm to take up the challenge of making the UK’s only raw milk Shropshire Blue. Will makes this to the same recipe as his Sparkenhoe Blue, but adds annatto to the milk, just as they do for their Sparkenhoe Red Leicester. This gives the cheese its glorious colour. The paste ranges from a blush, peach tone to a deeper hue next to the blue veins, as the curd begins to break down. The taste is buttery and mellow with a gentle spice to finish.

 Mrs KirkhamsMade by Graham Kirkham in Goosner, Lancashire                                                  Mrs Kirkham's Lancashire is a fantastic, a buttery finish and a flaky texture cows' milk cheese, with delightfully lactic flavour.  Made on the Beesley Farm in Lancashire to the same recipe Mrs Kirkham first made it in 1978, though the cheese today is now made by Graham Kirkham, her son.  This is the only Lancashire still made with unpasteurised cows' milk and hence the only Lancashire you should ever buy.
