Queso Artesanal de La Litera

Queso Artesanal de La Litera is a semi-hard ewes' milk cheese by Elena Uzcategui from her own herd of Lacaune sheep in the village of Alcampell (Huesca). The milk can be pasteurised or unpasteurised. It is a pressed cheese which can be matured for 20 days (young), 2 months (semi-mature) or 5 months (mature) and comes in cylinders weighing 2kg.

The natural rind is orange, covered with a fine dusting of white mould and has a pretty ridged surface texture. The interior is straw yellow with small irregular holes scattered throughout. The texture is quite brittle, but very buttery and somewhat grainy.

The cheese has a medium to strong lactic and pleasant aroma. The flavour (also medium to strong) is developed and intense with an elegant acidity balanced with aromas such as wool and leather with undertones of aromatic herbs. It has a long, nutty finish.

Each cheese is bound in raffia and in its locality, it is known as 'cord cheese'.
