Itimat Herbed Cheese (Van Otlu)


Otlu is a type of cheese made out of sheep's or cow's milk. Ripened cheese varieties containing herbs are traditional in Turkey and have been manufactured for more than 200 years in the east and southeast of the country.

They are manufactured from raw milk, semi-hard in texture and salty in taste, and have the aroma of garlic or thyme due to added herbs.
