Gioddi is a fermented ewes' or goats' milk, alcohol-acidic cheese from Sardinia, which is also known on the island as: Miciuratu, Mezzoraddu, Junchetta, Latte Ischidu. A natural mother culture, known as ‘sa madrighe’, is added to the milk.
In 1840, Vittorio Angius described the preparation carried out by the shepherds as follows: they take some bread, slice it and put it into the warm, cooked milk, and leave it until it acidifies, and then they strain it and add it to other previously-cooked milks. In the absence of bread, wheat may be used. A porcelain white curd forms after some hours, ready to be consumed. The consistency is creamy and dense, delicately milk-scented, whilst the taste is pleasantly sharp and fresh.
