With raw sheep's milk and vegetable rennet (Cynara Cardunculus), this precious cheese is elaborated and undergoes intense proteolysis in its ripening process until it becomes an ideal soft paste to spread.
The fermentation that occurs inside is unnatural and somehow keeps its SECRET. Bacteria from raw sheep's milk, pastures from the plains of Cáceres, grass rennet, and climatic conditions cause these cheeses to be ATTACKED during their cure, until they become almost liquid.
The secret of the maturation of at least 60 days, lies in keeping it in a cold and humid environment with periodic flips to get the consistency of its bark.
Discoidal cheese, domed, waxy, subtle and yellowish bark, which retains inside a soft, spreadable and very creamy paste of ivory yellow color. Its intense flavor to sheep's milk is very peculiar, slightly bitter, due to the use of the rennet of grass.
