    PRODUCTION TECHNIQUE:

    The production technique is the one that was already used at the dawn of civilization and, in essence, has remained unchanged. The milk obtained from milking, fresh, whole and raw, is placed in copper boilers and clotted at a temperature of about 35°C using lamb/kid rennet. After 20-30 minutes the curd breaks and lets itself settle on the bottom. Then, without any kind of cooking, the mass is collected from the bottom of the boiler and deposited in the characteristic trunk-cone-shaped molds called "pischeddas". This is subjected to the pressure form to obtain the purging of the serum, and to favor the thickening of the crust the so-called sunburn is carried out. When it is well firm, the shape is extracted and rested for about 24 hours, after which it is placed into brine, where it generally remains 8 to 12 hours per kilo. Next the shapes go on a slit, where they dry and/or foam for about two weeks. Finally they go to season, in a cool and dry environment, where they stay for months. When ripe, they are periodically brushed with a mixture of wine vinegar, olive oil and salt.
