Colston Bassett Shropshire Blue

Net Weight: 480g

Product Code: CHSB

A soft textured, mellow, blue cheese with a glorious contrast of colours between the orange hue of the curd and the delicate blue veins. [more...]

Shropshire Blue is made from pasteurised cow's milk and uses vegetable rennet.

The orange colour comes from the addition of annatto to the milk. The cheese has a deep orange-brown, natural rind and matures for a period of 10–12 weeks. Made in a similar way to Stilton, it is a soft cheese with a sharp, strong flavour and a slightly tangy aroma. It is slightly sharper than Stilton and generally creamier.

Suitable for vegetarians.

Keep refrigerated below 5oC
