Morbier is a delicious semi-soft cow’s milk cheese named after the small village of Morbier, in Franche-Comté. It is easily identifiable by its layer of blue/black edible vegetable ash, running horizontally through its middle. Traditionally, Morbier was made with a layer of evening milk curds, then a layer of ash was placed on top to protect it over night. The following morning, the morning milk curds would be added on top. Today, it is made by a single milking, and the ash is purely decorative.
The cheese takes about 45 days to 3 months for full maturation. When it's young, Morbier has a mild, rich and creamy flavour, with a nutty flavour. With age, it becomes richer and sharper with a more pronounced flavour.
An unpasteurised cheese that is not suitable for vegetarians.
Morbier is perfect on a cheese board, but works equally well on a toasted cheese sandwich!
