Manchego Cured 225g

£5.70

Manchego is Spain’s most famous cheese. Produced in La Mancha in Central Spain, is made from 100% Manchega sheep’s milk.

They have a distinctive zig-zag pattern on the outer rind which is produced from moulds of esparto grass and wooden presses.

The rind encloses the whole cheese and ranges in colour from yellow to a brown-ish beige. The inside is usually firm, but can range from med to hard, and has a few small air pockets spread throughout. Underneath the inedible rind, the interior is ivory colored with few small holes.

The abundance of wild herbs on Central Spain’s grazing lands gives Manchego a special taste and aroma. Our manchego cheese  is ripening for 8 months, giving it its special features, such a superb long and exuberant flavours while the texture is firm but not dry.

We cut this 225 gr. portion of the whole piece of manchego cheese, and vacuum pack it to preserve all its qualities. Ensuring that maintains its properties over a period of six months

To present, take out from the fridge 10 minutes before use, and cut it into medium thick slices about 6mm (1/4”) thick. Not eat the bottom bit of the rin. Nothing fancy, that’s it.

Taste Cured Manchego for the first time and you will be surprised at how long the wonderful flavor lingers on your palate. It is such an amazing experience.
