Ιkariotiki Kathoura

Ικαριώτικη Καθούρα

Known on Ikaria as Καθουρίτσα (kathouritsa) this soft pure goat's milk cheese, first recorded in the 17th century, is unusual in that it is boiled twice then cured in brine for at least three months. It is compact, buttery and full of flavour.

Kathouritsa is eaten as it is, or put in pies, or sliced and gently fried, then covered with honey and cinnamon
