Manchego cheese is a sheep’s milk cheese made in the La Mancha region of Spain. 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 12 month cheese is full-flavored, nutty. I encourage you to try it with quince paste or an allfruit jam. Delicious.
