Damson cheese is an old English recipe. It isn’t cheese in the dairy sense but a thick fruity paste, ideal with roast meats and also the best on a cheeseboard.
Lyth Valley Damsons are an old English native fruit, similar to plums. Deep purple in colour, with pale yellow flesh they have a delicious, distinctive slightly tart flavour.
The orchards of the Lyth Valley, Southern Lake District, Cumbria date back to the 1850s. The unique geographical features of the valley provide an excellent micro-climate for cultivation.
