cabrales -

Cabrales are Spanish-made cheeses made with a mixture of cow's milk, goat's milk and raw sheep's milk. This cheese is produced exclusively in a village of the same name and three other villages east of Asturia, in northern Spain.

Cabrales are blue cheeses produced in spring and summer. This cheese is traditionally wrapped in maple leaves so the skin of the cheese is filled with the scent of the leaves. The skin of Cabrales cheese is orange-yellow and has a rough and sticky surface.

While the inside of this cheese is white or yellow with brown fringe. This cheese is cooked in a natural limestone cave for two to three months.
