Crumbly Lancashire Cheese

Our Crumbly Lancashire Cheese has a fresh, slightly acidic flavour with a smooth and moist texture.

Lancashire Cheese was entirely farmhouse made until 1913 when the first factory cheese was made in a dairy at Chipping.

Crumbly Lancashire Cheese was first made in the early 1950’s at Chipping by Steven’s Grandfather, Timothy Procter. This was due to customers requesting a bright, white, moist, crumbly cheese as an alternative to the more traditional creamy and tasty varieties of Lancashire cheeses available at that time.

220g Greenfields Crumbly Lancashire Cheese

1.5kg selection of root vegetables

3 red onions

2 tbsp olive oil

Salt & pepper

Few sprigs of fresh thyme

1. Preheat the oven to 200C / 400F /gas mark 6.
2. Peel the vegetables and cut into approximately 1 inch chunks. If using  pumpkin or butternut squash, cut these into slightly larger chunks as they cook more quickly. Peel the onions, leaving the root intact. Cut into quarters, lengthways through the root.
3. Put all the vegetables into a large roasting tin, drizzle over the oil and toss together. Season and scatter the thyme over the top.
4. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes, turning the vegetables once during cooking.
5. Break the Crumbly Lancashire into small chunks and add to the vegetables.
6. Return to the oven and cook a further 10-15 minutes. When the vegetables are golden and the cheese is soft, remove from the oven & serve.
