Fresh Goat Cheese
Here is a sample of one of the local Tenerife fresh cheeses. Although it's not the same one used below in the quesadillas from El Hierro, it is similar in appearance and would probably be fine to use if one wished to make the quesadillas at home.
I just wanted to clarify what a 'fresh cheese' from these islands looks like.
They stay fresh for only a few days and must be eaten soon after they are purchased.
This piece comes from the factory in Arico, Tenerife which produced the winning cheese in the World Cheese Awards in Dublin in 2008.
