Casu axedu o Frue cheese
Casu Axedu is goats' or ewes' milk cheese made in various parts of Sardinia, where it goes under various names: Frue, Frughe, Fruge, Frua, Casu Ageru, Casu e Fitta, Pretta, Latte Kadzadu, Latti Kallau, Latte Biskidu, Latte Viskidu, Merka.
The curd, formed chiefly by the natural culture of lactic ferments, is cut up into large pieces, left to acidify for a whole day and is ready for immediate consumption. Otherwise, it may be drained, dry-salted and preserved in salt inside terracotta containers for several months. The fresh cheese has no rind, and is in the form of small porcelain white cubes. The cheese is soft, and compact, with a pleasantly sharp lactic odour. The ripened variety, often used in preparing minestra (soup), is denser, with a saltier, sharper flavour.
