This cheese is also known as Queso Majorero. It is a hard cheese made from unpasteurised milk of Majorera goats on the island of Fuerteventura, which is one of the Canary Islands. It is usually produced in the cylindrical shape. The cheese is produced as a natural white rind cheese with a patterned rind, a cheese rubbed with oil, or paprika, or sweet roasted cornmeal flour. When aged, it develops dark colour with coloured rind. Majorero is creamy and buttery in texture with acidic taste and spicy flavour. Majorero cheese can be served as a snacking cheese, a dessert cheese with honey drizzled over it.
