Blue vinny

blue vinny -

Blue Vinny or also known as Blue Vinney Dorset is a blue cheese that comes from the Dorset region in England made with raw cow's milk. In 1982, Mike Davies brought back this cheese that had been forgotten. The word "vinny" in old English means "to be moldy".

The blue color of this cheese comes from the penicillin fungus despite rumors saying that the blue color comes from old leather boots placed next to the barrel of this cheese. Rumors are created because the mushrooms that exist on Blue Vinny cheese is also found on leather boots that are aging. When making this cheese, penicillin mushrooms are added directly to the milk.
