Shropshire Blue

A soft blue cows' milk cheese, made in a similar style to Blue Stilton, but (a) matured for a shorter time. (b) generally dyed orange with annatto. (c) unrestricted by geographical or other rules or regulations.

Most of the top Stilton cheese producers also offer Shropshire Blue as a second string cheese.

The cheese and name have little history – probably only dating back to the 1970's, when it was made at The Castle Styart Dairy in Inverness, by a cheesemaker who had learnt his craft at a Stilton creamery.

If you enjoy cooking take a minute to look at ‘Simon Scrutton French Cookery Classes’ on Google – and learn how to make top class bistro-style dishes. Suitable for beginners upwards. Small classes.
