The rinds of these classic Extremaduran Ibores cheeses are hand rubbed with Pimenton de la Vera – smoked paprika that dates back to the time of Columbus. It is the traditional way Ibores cheese has been presented. This semi-cured cheese is aged for a minimum of two months, producing a creamy, buttery flavor.
Ibores is produced from the milk of Serrana, Verata or Retinta goats, all bred according to tradition, and allowed to roam across the arid countryside searching out these aromatic herbs and grasses. The addition of Pimenton de la Vera from home grown peppers complements the rockrose, heather, and thyme the goats have eaten.
Raw goat's milk, rennet, lactic ferments, salt and paprika on the rind.
