Juncata or Giuncata. Mentioned already by Teocrito, a Hellenistic poet, it is a fresh cow’s milk product of morning or evening milking. Filtered, heated and with added rennet, it is collected during the first phase of curdling. Afterwards it has to be dried in containers, put into rush baskets, after those it is named, and then it is left to rest for a couple of hours. It is produced and merchandised the same day, it should be eaten fresh in order to appreciate the particular tender consistency, similar to a pudding, and the sweet and delicate flavour.
