Camerano cheese

Origin

Camerano is a goatsmilk cheese, produced in the Sierra de los Cameros in the region of La Rioja. It can be made fresh, soft, semi-matured or matured and with either pasteurised or unpasteurised milk. The cheese is distinguished by its markings caused by the twisted wicker of the moulds which are known as ‘’cillas’’. The cheeses are generally mild tasting and acidic.

The fresh version of the cheese is not matured and weighs between 200g and 800g. It is brilliant white in colour, has a smooth texture and is moist and soft. It has virtually no rind.

The soft variety is matured for at least 15 days and weighs between 200g and 1.2kg. It has a clearly defined rind and the interior varies from white to ivory in colour. It has a soft to semi- hard texture.

The semi-matured cheese ripens for 30 days and weighs between 200g and 1.2kg. The rind is clearly defined and develops a greenish brown mould. Its texture is semi-hard to hard and with few or no holes. The colour of the interior varies from white to ivory.

The matured cheese cures for at least 75 days and weighs between 200g and 1.2kg. It too, has a clearly defined rind with greenish brown moulds. It has a firm, hard texture with little or no holes.
