100% traditional delicacy
The Afuega'l Pitu is a fatty cheese that can be fresh or aged, made with whole cow's milk of the Friesian or Asturian de los Valles breeds and their crosses, with a soft paste obtained by lactic coagulation, reddish-orange in color when it has paprika. This cheese is listed in the written documentation at least since the XNUMXth century as a tax payment currency. Since 2008 it has the Protected Designation of Origin of the European Union.
Weight: pieces of 300 gr. approx.
Ingredients: whole cow's milk and paprika.
Features: Truncated conical shape, without kneading and red color. Natural rind, variable consistency depending on the degree of maturation of the cheese and the addition of paprika.
Fresh acidic and lactic flavors and aromas are appreciated, reminiscent of butter, which evolve with hints of yeast. In the first stages of maturation, a rather soft and adherent texture is also appreciated that does not allow a clean cut easily with a knife.
Conservation: keep refrigerated between 4º and 6º.
allergens: contains lactose.
Accompaniment: goes well with everything. With fruit or jam, with pasta, with anchovies or ham, it comes in handy to brighten up salads, pizzas, desserts or a good cachopo.
