A delicate yoghurty cheese, which is wrapped in nettle leaves.  Cornish Yarg gets it's name from the original maker, Alan Gray (Yarg backwards!), who reportedly found the recipe in his attic.  The recipe, which is loosely based on a Caerphilly recipe was sold to a nearby farm.  The cheese is wrapped in nettle leaves, that are completely edible.  The leaves protect the cheese, whilst allowing it to breath and attract the specific moulds that encourage the beautiful, almost lace-like appearance of the rind, to develop.  This in turn breaks down the interior of the cheese.  Once matured it has a creamy, fresh lemony flavour.
