    Semi-seasoned raw milk pecorino is excellent consumed in purity to savor the aroma and fullness given by the raw milk used. It can therefore be used both as a table cheese and in the kitchen.

    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 for 3 to 6 months.
