Wensleydale with Cranberries
© Denzil Green
Wensleydale Cheese with Cranberries is Wensleydale Cheese, made with pasteurized cow’s milk, with cranberries folded into the cheese.
It is a fresh cheese with a fresh, clean taste, with the tartness of the cranberries helping the cheese to act as a foil alongside overly rich servings of mince tarts or Christmas fruitcake.
It is generally aged 3 to 4 weeks, and then released to the market in time for Christmas sales.
In 2010, 29% of all Wensleydale Cheese sold was this cranberry version.
Wensleydale Cheese with Cranberries is not for cooking, but rather is a table cheese.
