Customers at a farm shop in Leasingham have been taken aback by the store’s latest deli delight – Char Coal cheese.
Dan Mansfield, assistant manager at Manor Farm Shop, said. “It’s a mature cheddar but it’s completely black inside where it’s mixed with the charcoal but it tastes really creamy.”
The cheese comes from Yorkshire-based cheese producers Michael Lee Fine Cheeses and was the winner of the Best New Idea at the Farm Shop and Deli show 2014.
One wonders if this could see usage as a poison control device? Charcoal, after all, can absorb up lingering ingested poison, and is in fact prescribed for exactly that purpose.
