Oveja de los Pedroches cheese
Made with vegetable rennet obtained from the flower of the wild thistle, the cheese is a cylindrical shape, the top and bottom of which is smooth and flat. The slightly convex sides have the plaited imprints of esparto grass mould. It weighs between 2-3 kg.
The cheese is normally preserved in oil and has a thin, bright yellow, semi-hard rind due to it having been rubbed with olive oil. The interior is ivory white in colour and contains some holes.
There is also a ‘torta’ variety, weighing about 1 kg, which is soft to very soft, and has a sour, woolly aroma. The use of vegetable rennet in both types leaves a bitter aftertaste.
