Beschrijving

La Palma cheese, also called Palmero, is a pressed paste cheese, made from raw whole milk from the native Palmera goat breed.

It is cylindrical and has a smooth surface. Pieces weigh between 750 g and 15 kg and when they are over 8 kg are called "manada" (herd) cheese. The outer rind is thin and quite sticky, with shades of ochre and brown. The paste inside is semi-soft, with round holes caused by fermentation. It is whitish in colour, has a marked taste and a very buttery texture. Its aroma is pleasant and slightly smoky – perfect for eating as a tapa or added to other dishes such as stews or other specialities from the Canary Islands.
