St Agur???

Postby Kitcameron » 30 Dec 2013, 14:15

Does anyone know if St Agur blue cheese is permissible or not? I've been living on it and crackers over Christmas thinking "well it's harder than some blue cheeses and it says pasteurized' but does pasteurisation count with blue cheese? Not to worry if not but I suppose I'd better stop eating it if it's banned. It was the hardest of the varieties of St Agur I've seen, not the Delice version.

Officially, I think not allowed (it is the mould ripening that is the problem, that would happen after pasteurisation). But personally I would probably take the (tiny) risk.

I'd have said no but then eaten it anyway. Risk is relative. I've had a couple of Brie cravings this pregnancy and have earned more of it than usual. Mmmmm, now I'm thinking I'd like some st agur...

Stilton is.fine. I've been living on it. Yum. Not sure what st agur.is.in terms of its generic type...

Maybe I'll just buy Stilton instead. St Agur is just more spreadable lol.

Thanks everyone.

It's the moisture content that matters. Even unpasteurised stilton is fine as it's too dry for listeria! Now all you need to do is find out the moisture content of St Agur and compare it to that of stilton...

<not helpful>

I'm with everyone else though. I wouldn't worry!

I'd say it's quite moist lol.
