Soft cheese with creamy flesh, small holes, and medium ripening. Made from cow’s and sheep’s milk 100% Italian. It is a tradition of the Marche region to flavour cheeses in different ways. This caciotta in the past was exclusively prepared in the winter period with sweet chilli peppers and it is tied with the custom of the agricultural norcineria (the art of preparing cured meat).
MILK ORIGIN: Italy
INGREDIENTS: Pasteurised cow’s milk, pasteurized sheep’s milk, chili peppers (min. 0,4%), salt, rennet, selected enzymes. Free from preservatives, it has an edible crust.
USAGE INSTRUCTIONS: For an optimal taste, remove from the fridge and keep at room temperature for a few hours before consuming.
The flavoured caciottas are excellent table cheeses and they are often tasted by the slice together with homemade bread or the typical “crescia” of the Marche Region. Ideal to boost the flavour of your salad mix or to garnish baked pasta dishes. It is delicious in combinations with delicate and finest white wines.
