Sour Mizithra (Xinomizithra) 450g

Xinomizithra is a medium-soft fresh cheese that has been made, and loved, in Crete for thousands of years. It has a slightly sour taste with a melt-in-the-mouth texture that is akin to aged ricotta. This is the soured and aged version of plain Mizithra cheese. Xinomizithra contains less than 30% fat so it’s a good choice for the health conscious. It is made in the simplest way possible at the Tzourbaki dairy. Milk is brought to a slow boil for a few minutes then curdled by adding rennet or whey from a previous batch. Natural acids, such as lemon juice or a fresh broken fig tree sprig, is added to form curds before it is poured into a cheesecloth bag and hung to drain.
