Queso Ovín cheese
The milk is placed into a cold tank to be pasteurised and then the starter and rennet are added. After 45 minutes, the curds are cut into small pieces and then shaped into a cube for pressing. Once it has drained, it is placed in a cloth-lined mould, pressed again and soaked in brine for 12 hours. It then matures for a month or a month-and-a-half.
The small cylindrical cheese weigh between 400 and 500 g and has a white to cream interior depending upon the milk used. The rind is the same colour and has a fluted texture.
- 1 Some sources state that only goats’ and/or ewes’ milk is used, but other sources include cows’ milk as well.
