Caprino al lattice di fico cheese
Caprino al lattice di fico is a goats' milk cheese from Monte Paganuccio in the 'comune' of Cagli in Italy's Marche region. it is unusual in that it is curdled by means of stirring a branch of a fig tree into the milk until it curdles. It is a simple procedure but requires great experience because if the branch remains immersed for a moment longer than necessary, the cheese takes on a nasty, bitter taste. The cheese is matured for at least one month or can be left for up to a year and has a savoury, slightly spicy flavour.
