DESCRIPTION: fresh pecorino with saffron has a saffron yellow rind and a wrinkled surface shows the modeling of the basket in which it was placed. The paste is compact, saffron yellow with slight holes and black peppercorns inside. Its smell is spicy, fresh and floral; the delicate and fruity taste.


    Raw milk pecorino with saffron is excellent consumed in purity, therefore it can be used both as a table cheese and in the kitchen. Excellent as an appetizer or main course in combination with other dishes. We recommend serving it together with typical Sicilian cold cuts, jams or honey, fresh bread and olives, which enhance its intense and decisive taste.


    The fresh milk from the morning milking and the previous evening is collected and brought to the dairy, heated to a temperature of 38 ° C, is inoculated with lactic ferments and subsequently curdled. For the production of this cheese, the milk is not pasteurized. Once the curd is obtained, it is broken into a grain of corn and once separated from the whey, the pasta is transferred into molds to give the typical shape of Sicilian pecorino. The salting is done in saturated brine and the refinement takes place in special cells at controlled temperature and humidity.
