Burgos: A snow-white moist, lightly-salted, fresh cheese from the province of Burgos, in Northern Spain. It is generally made with sheep’s milk, but can be made from cow’s milk, as well. It is not a fatty cheese, since it is made from partially skimmed milk and has a very mild flavor. Since it is a fresh cheese, not cured, it is made to be eaten soon after being made. Mixed with honey and nuts, or dried fruit, it becomes a fabulous dessert. It can also be mixed in salads or used in making cheese cakes.
