Valle de Roncal y Valle de Salazar — 4 Comments

  1. There is such a wonderful rustic beauty about this place, in the rugged Pyrenees, in the small village, and even in the herd of sheep. I can see that working to earn a daily living here must be physically demanding with the air so dry and draining, but in the end it is likely very rewarding.

    This cheese you speak of hunting, is it from goat milk, cow milk, or perhaps from sheep milk? There are still places in the world today where sheep are milked and cheese is often made from sheep milk. I have always wondered how sheep milk cheese might taste. Would it have a strong heavy flavor and go well with garlic and onion in a rice casserole served with fresh baked bread?

    How does the local cheese taste there? Mild, strong, spicy, slightly sweet?

    Drink plenty of water. Blessings to you both while on your vacation. Have fun exploring! May you be rewarded with hunting and finding many fine cheeses!

    • Thank you so much for your very thoughtful comment! The cheese is from the sheep. The rainfall in the Two valleys is more than we get in the Outer Hebrides, amd ots cloudier, too ; but when it is sunny it gets warm very quickly, so the grass grows long and lush. Perfect for dairy, albeit very small scale.

  2. It’s wonderful to see your photos and hear about your experiences in that region of Spain. It’s not one that gets a lot of mention, and it looks beautiful!
