Eldren-Hot Love and Lavender Mist, only available February 2008 for Purple Love week

 

[ Cow Soft Unpas ]
Cranborne Chase Cheese, Dorset

Hot Love is sprinkled with paprika and Lavender Mist as the name implies has lavender with it. Since this photograph was taken Richard and Martin have developed it further to enable them to put the lavender in during the making which gives it a much more subtle flavour. It is topped with a stem of lavender!Made from unpasteurised cow’s milk it is a fresh cheese with a creamy texture, comparable to a baked cheesecake, and a clean zesty taste. When very young, at four days old, there is a predominant taste of lemons. Although when left to mature for up to 3 weeks it will further develop its creamy texture. Eldren takes its name from a wood on the Cranborne Chase estate.
