Morbier is named after a small village in eastern France's Franche-Comté region. It was originally created as a way of using up surplus curd from the making of the wheels of Comté.
Morbier is defined by the distinctive dark vein of vegetable ash streaking through its middle. Traditionally, the evening's fresh curds were sprinkled with ash, to protect it overnight, and the next morning new curd was laid upon the thin layer of ash to finish off the wheel.
Rich and aromatic, it is semi soft, with a supple texture the flavour is nutty, yeasty, with fresh grass traits. This is an earthy, mountain cheese that is carefully aged for a full three months and is made with unpasteurised cow's milk.
