How is Roncari blue cheese made?
The blue cheese Roncari Blue is produced by Quesera Navarra Enaquesa in Spain. It is also known as Queso Azul Ronkari-Blue by the locals. Actually, the PDO gave it a protected designation of origin in 1981, making it one of the first Spanish cheeses to do so. This stunning Spanish blue has its historical origins in the Roncal Valley in the Navarrese Pyrenees in Northern Spain. Additionally, this blue cheese is made locally by artisanal cheesemakers using the premium Latxa sheep milk. It's not unexpected that people frequently refer to it as the Spanish Roquefort. Pasteurized sheep's milk is combined with Penicillium roqueforti by the cheesemaker, who then wraps the produced wheels in foil. Additionally, the foil stops the cheese from developing a natural rind. Additionally, it keeps a comparatively high moisture content. The wheels are then aged by the affineur for up to 4 months. Overall, the loosely packed creamy pâte is covered in scattered pockets of greyish-green mold caused by the Penicillium mold.
