LAIT PECORINO ELIGHE
Elighe has a sweet and tart taste when fresh but with maturation it acquires a more decisive and almost spicy flavor. After thermization and inoculation with natural milk enzymes, it is coagulated with veal rennet. It is ready for consumption after 90 days but maturation can take over 12 months. Its straw coloured and slightly ‘eyed’ paste has a soft and elastic texture when fresh and becomes slightly crumbly with maturation. The straw coloured rind darkens with maturation.
