Nonna's Pantry presents Amatrice Pecorini!
Milk: from italian sheep pasteurized, transformed in 24 hours from milking.
Ingredients: Sheep milk pasteurized, rennet, salt, lactic ferments.
Characteristics: The summits of Amatrice mountains are the birthplace of this pecorino. The ancient shepherds, during their transhumance, exchanged advice and experiences, to prepare their cheese, and the “Montanaro”was born on these mountains. It is made adding a sweet rennet , scrupoloosly seasoned, allowing it to refine its taste. Outside it shows a crust from straw- coloured to brick red. The best seasoning is from 6 months. It distinguishes it-self by a delicate fragrance. Tasting it, it seem to feel the cheese to melt in your mouth. It shows an half- cooked paste, friable, with some holes, clear white, thanks to the mesophilic ferment.
In the kitchen: Its agreeable taste allow to enjoy the natural goodness, or to accompany it to many delicacies. We suggest you a composition with tender vegetables and walnut kernels salads, or the classical coupling with ripe pears. Recommended with honey, to taste the sweet-sharp contrast to be preferred light, fresh wine, or vin rose.
