PALO SANTO CHEESE
Palo Santo cheese is a pasteurized cow's milk cheese, semi-soft paste, milky color and pleasant flavor. The rind is a beautiful toasted color, with the name Palo Santo, the pilgrim's shell (symbol of the Camino de Santiago) and the "Palo Santo" engraved on the surface. It is a very creamy cheese that can be enjoyed on its own, accompanied by honey or quince, or even cooked, since it is a cheese that melts easily. We can also accompany it with a good sweet white wine.
The name Palo Santo comes from the instrument used, around the year 1720, by the monks of a monastery near Cuntis, (Pontevedra, Spain) to remove the milk curd. From this curd, an exquisite fatty cheese came out, which matured in the convent's cellars before being consumed. Thanks to some researchers in the area who searched through the old documents of the Monastery, it was possible to obtain the formula, which is used just as it was done at that time to offer us the magnificent Palo Santo cheese.
Creamy, tender Galician cheese with a buttery texture, made with pressed paste, from pasteurized cow's milk. The same process and typical Galician recipe that is used to make "tetilla" cheese, with the innovation of the flat finish in order to achieve extra creaminess and softness throughout the piece.
A medium-sized, disk-shaped cheese. It combines very well with honey or quince.
