Queso Peña Blanca cheese
Peña Blanca is produced by Los Corrales, in Almedijar, a town in the province of Castellón, which is located in the natural park of the Sierra de Espadán. It is made with unpasteurised ewes’ milk and lamb rennet and is matured for least sixty days. It comes in cylinders weighing 2kg.
The cheese is also made from the milk of the Guirra, breed of the Valencian Community, but it is in serious danger of extinction. They do not have this milk throughout the year, so production is limited to just 200 cheeses. These cheeses have a stronger flavour, peculiar to this breed of sheep.
The rind is yellowish-ivory in colour with red and ochre moulds. The interior is semi-soft and ivory white, with very small holes, especially in summer. Depending on the time of maturation, it may have a small dark marking around the rind.
