CREAMY LANCASHIRE

For centuries, Lancashire
Lancashire
dairy farmers' wives made cheese from surplus milk. On small farms there was insufficient milk from a single day to make a cheese, and so each day's milk was curdled and accumulated for several days until there was enough curd to make a cheese. Uniquely amongst all British cheeses, two or three days' curd of varying maturity are blended together, giving Lancashire
Lancashire
cheese a distinctive character. The traditional method was standardised in the 1890s by Joseph Gornall of Garstang
Garstang
and Pilling
Pilling
, a county council employee, who visited many Lancashire
Lancashire
farms to establish a method and recipe that is still used today – the "Gornall method". His "Gornall Patent Cheesemaker" was sold between 1892 and 1919.

Creamy Lancashire
Lancashire
cheese is made by this traditional method and matured for a period of four to twelve weeks. It has a fluffy texture and creamy flavour, and is good for toasting, as it does not become stringy when melted.

Beacon Fell Traditional Lancashire
Lancashire
cheese is a Protected Designation of Origin name. The name can be used only for cheese from milk from an area north of the River Ribble
River Ribble
including the Fylde , Preston , and Blackpool

and made in the same area by a designated method. It is named after Beacon Fell within the designated area.

TASTY LANCASHIRE

Tasty Lancashire
Lancashire
cheese is made by the same traditional method as Creamy Lancashire, but is matured for longer, from 12 weeks to 24 months. It has a mature nutty taste.

CRUMBLY LANCASHIRE

In the 1950s, Crumbly Lancashire
Lancashire
cheese was created. Unlike the other Lancashire
Lancashire
varieties, this is made from a single day's milk and resembles other crumbly cheeses such as Cheshire and Wensleydale . It is the only Lancashire
Lancashire
cheese that is produced outside of the county of Lancashire. It tends to be matured for only 6–8 weeks, resulting in a crumbly, fresh, high-acid cheese.
