Barinaga Ranch in California produces two types of cheeses, the larger of which is known as Baserri and the smaller version - Txiki. Marcia Barinaga's second raw-sheep's-milk cheese, Txiki, meaning "little" in Basque follows the same recipe as Basseri except that weighs only a tommette-sized 1.5- to 2-pound. Due to its size, it ages rapidly and tastes sweet, nutty, and a lbit fruity.
