Shropshire Blue Cheese from the Colston Bassett Dairy
A little sweeter than stilton
DESCRIPTIONShropshire Blue cheese is wonderful and it would certainly be among my desert island cheeses if I really had to choose one. A lovely creamy, yet crumbly blue cheese with a good taste. Slightly sweeter than stilton, its just as rich though. Made by the Colston Bassett Dairy like our favourite Stilton (so not from Shropshire at all), it has Annatto added (which is a vegetable colouring derived from Thistles) to give it its characteristic red colour. Made with pasteurised cows milk and vegetarian rennet, its a lovely cheese on a cracker, perfect with a bit of quince or chutney on a cold winters night.
