Manchego (3 Month)
Manchego cheese is a sheep’s milk cheese made in the La Mancha region of Spain. Manchego is aged for 3 months or longer, and is a semi-firm cheese with a rich golden colour and small holes. It ranges from mild to sharp, depending on how long it is aged. Manchego cheese is protected by its Denominación de Origen. This controls its production, ensures the exclusive use of milk only from the Manchega sheep, and dictates an aging period (in natural caves) of a minimum of two months. The 3 month cheese is creamy and rich. Try it with the quince paste. Note: sheep’s milk cheeses are often requested as alternatives for those who cannot process cow’s milk lactose. It’s worth asking your doctor about eating.
