It is said to be Scotland’s most ancient cheese, Scottish Crowdie dates back as far as Viking and Pictish times when it was made by every crofter in the Highlands of Scotland.
The more traditional method for making Crowdie in those days would be to slowly warm a bucket of milk (straight from the cow) by the fire until it soured and curdled. Interestingly, Thistle was historically used as a form of rennet. We think you might enjoy our method more.
The cheese was often eaten on oatcakes before a Ceilidh as it was said to alleviate the effects of whisky drinking!
