Print Recipe
Derby is a traditional English style cheese from the rural county of Derbyshire, England. Its history goes back to at least the 17th century. In many respects, Derby is similar to Cheddar, but has a softer body and slightly higher moisture content. When young, it is springy and mild but as it matures, subtle sweet flavors develop and the texture becomes firmer.
