Blue Wensleydale

Blue Wensleydale Cheese was revived in the 1990s from the Wensleydale recipe. It is made from double-cream.

It has blue veins like Stilton, though it is much milder. It is aged about 6 months.

This is often sold as "Yorkshire Blue."

History Notes

Wensleydale was originally a blue cheese. Up until the 1920s, just saying "Wensleydale" meant the Blue Wensleydale. Now, white is better known and the Blue considered the novelty cheese. See entry on Wensleydale for more History.
