The idea of cheese and fruit goes back for centuries, as people enjoy pairing this savory and sweet combination. The cheese makers at Canti took this one step further by not only eating fruit with their cheese, but actually incorporating fruit into their cheese. Using only the highest quality produce, fruit juice is added to the curd while it is still soft. The cheese is then aged for a minimum of two months, allowing the flavours to mingle during the aging process. This unique technique allows for a dense, flakey paste and a slightly tart, fruits and irresistible flavour. The fruitiness is not overwhelming, but adds just a hint of something different to this young pecorino.
