Beskrivning

Flor de Guía Cheese is produced in the Guía and Gáldar Heights, in the north-western part of the island of Gran Canaria.

It is pale yellow in colour and is made with a mixture of cow's and sheep's milk. Its rind is whitish-yellow and the inside is compact, but with small spaces produced during fermentation. It is oily or very oily, its cylindrical shape is quite flat, with rounded edges and stripes on the faces. It is medium in size with a weight of over two kilos. It has a buttery taste and is easily melted. Made completely by hand, it uses vegetable curd obtained from the thistle flower, hence its name. This characteristic is what sets it apart from the rest of the Canary Island cheeses, which use kid curd and goat's or sheep's milk. Its texture is soft and elastic, as well as its characteristic flavour, soft but well developed, mixing both sweet and bitter components. It is usually eaten alone, although it is also used in a number of stews and vegetable soups.
