CINI TAL-MIJA Butcher Gozo

Local Gozo cheese ”Gbejniet”

Gbejniet are part of local cuisine, popular among Maltese, Gozitans and tourists alike. Gbejniet can be made with cow, sheep or goat’s milk, however it is the ones made of sheep’s milk that make the true gbejna. Gbejniet are made by adding rennet a digestive enzyme produced by mammals to the milk and allowing the milk to stand until it hardens enough to be cut with a knife, whereupon it is placed in plastic containers and allowed to harden further.
