Queso de Genestoso cheese
Queso de Genestoso is a cows’ milk cheese that is produced almost exclusively in Genestoso or «Xenestoso» in the ‘concejo’ of Cangas del Narcea in the Asturias. Traditionally ewes’ and goats’ milk was used. Its production has now almost disappeared, whilst the Ministry of Agriculture has submitted a plan for revitalizing it.
The cheese has a yellowish white interior and clear yellow rind. It weighs less than a kilogram and has a cylindrical shape with a 'wasit' around the middle. It is also known as Queso Xenestoso or Xinistosu.
