Preparation of the Torta del Casar 500 gr. by Pastoralia

Pastoralia's Torta del Casar is made with the best between-fine sheep's milk and fed in a traditional way. This soft cheese following all the necessary guidelines to achieve a perfect Torta del Casar:

  1. Raw material: Merino and entrefina sheep are raised in the open air and in the pastures of Extremadura. They are milked twice a day and it is a mechanized process so that the milk does not have any impurities.
  2. Natural rennet: consists of separating milk into its solid and liquid elements. The milk is transferred to the rennet tank and heated to a temperature between 26º and 32ºC. Subsequently, the rennet (made by macerating the Cynara Cardunculus thistle flower in water) is added. After an hour approx. the thistle curdles the milk.
  3. Cutting, shaping and salting the cheese: The whey is removed and the cheese is molded. The curd is placed in molds to obtain the characteristic round shape of the Torta del Casar. Once filled, they are put in a press to eliminate the remains of whey and retain the curd. Once the cheese is well pressed, it is removed and the salt is added.
  4. Maturation: this process has a minimum time of two months in which the cheese must be turned every day. It will keep in low temperature and high humidity. In this way, it acquires its own characteristics.
  5. Consume and enjoy.

* Keep refrigerated. Open and temper 2 hours before consumption.
