Caciotta Fresca Cheese
is artisan semi-hard fresh cheese
from pasteurized sheep’s milk.
Soft and elastic, ivory white.
Delicious, great idea as an appetizer or side dish,
diced in salads, by itself,
or with natural honey or jam.
Caciotta Fresca is a cheese suitable for all palates,
thanks to the softness of its paste.
What distinguishes this Caciotta Fresca from those of industrial production
is the Ontario Sheep’s milk processed with artisanal methods and short maturation.
Suggestions: the Caciotta Fresca is very good with wood-fired bread
and can also be enjoyed with compotes for cheeses;
excellent in combination with any vegetables or fruits.
The Caciotta is a cheese born in relatively recent times
for the need of shepherds to create a product more delicate
and less spicy than Pecorino, which could be ready in less time.
Caciotta can be fresh or semi-mature;
that is, its maturation is interrupted before the cheese becomes excessively mature.
The Caciotta can be produced with all types of milk, sheep, cow, goat,
buffalo or mixed, depending on the region in which it is produced.
N.B. Images are included for illustrative purposes. Products may appear different.
Cacciotta has more than a dozen variations.
The cheeses are cylindrical in shape and up to 1 kilogram (2.2 lb) weight.
The period of ripening is brief, and the soft, yellow rind surrounds a white
or yellowish body which is soft in texture and mild in flavour.
Ingredients: sheep’s-milk, Kefir, rennet, salt.
