Pecorino Camomilla is produced in May and June, when the sheep graze on the best grass of the year and the fields are covered with chamomile flowers. The cheesemaker was inspired by memories of his grandma, who would put the cheese in large wooden crates covered with fresh cut chamomile to preserve it as it aged. The wheels were stored, closed up under the arches during the afternoon heat and then placed in a cool pantry in the evening. The process maintained the cheeseā€™s softness, as well the floral aroma.
