Pecorino Salaprese cheese

Pecorino Salaprese is produced with the milk of native breeds of ewe in the Campania provinces of Caserta, Benevento, Avellino and Salerno. Not matures, a fact which probably comes from the name: "salaprese," meaning that he "just picked up the salt," it is consumed immediately after salting. The milk is brought to about 36°C then rennet is added and it is coagulated in 20 to 30 minutes. After cutting the curds to the size of a grain of rice, it is left to rest for a few minutes. It is then placed in moulds and pressed to drain the whey. After 3 to 4 hours the cheese is blanched in boiling whey and dry salting is carried out for 24 hours. They are left to age in a cool, well ventilated area and are ready for consumption after a short drying period at a constant temperature. The rind is soft, barely coloured and greasy. The interior is compact, soft, mushy, without holes, and white or slightly straw in colour. It has a strong taste of milk.
