Brynza is a type of white pickled cheese made from milk. Its feature is a fairly soft, but elastic texture without brittleness. The taste of a classic product is usually moderately salty, sometimes even a little spicy. In the homeland of this cheese, it is most often made from sheep's or goat's milk, and sometimes they are even combined for a piquancy of taste. The hero of our recipe will be cow cheese, as it is cow's milk that is considered the most traditional raw material for our region. If you are a fan of goat milk, you may well choose it as the basis.
As for nationality, it is not easy to determine it right off the bat, and that's because cheese is considered an integral component of the Balkan, Mediterranean, Caucasian, and now European cuisine. However, there is evidence that the first mention of such a delicacy refers to the Thracian tribes of the Getae, who lived as early as the 1st century BC. The Greek and Scythian peoples with whom the Getae supported in those days had a huge impact on their culture and religion. lively trade relations. Apparently, this is how the products traditional for the Thracians, including cheese, ended up on the tables of other peoples.
The recipe has been improved and personalized every time. This is how Greek cheese appeared, as well as Balkan, Georgian, etc. In some countries, homemade cheese and its recipe even got their own name.
