Lemon Stilton


One of Clawson’s first true dessert cheeses, Lemon Zest has become a favourite, combining the mildness of White Stilton with the zing of lemon. White Stilton is also a protected name cheese and is made in a similar way to its blue cousin – except that no mould spores are added and the cheese would be sold at about 4 weeks of age. It is a crumbly, creamy, open textures cheese and is now extensively used as a base for blending with apricot, ginger and citrus or vine fruits to create unique dessert cheeses. Tastes like lemon cheesecake. I love serving a small piece with fresh berries.
