Product description

We tried to give a second life to a product that was a waste product and destined to be thrown away. That’s right, the Biobacche Toscane Farm that produces a variety of agricultural products, including some wonderful special juices made by pressing fruit. In this case, with the production of their blueberry juice, the skins represented a waste and we used them as an ingredient for the refinement of our pecorino.

The result surprised us, because it gave the product not only the typical coloring tending to dark blue-purple, but also the flavor of the cheese was pleasantly contaminated by it.

In fact, we can say that this is a first experiment that will surely give birth to other new cheeses, thanks to this collaboration.

The rind is of course edible.
