SAPPADA, PLEASURE FOR THE EYES AND THE PALATE A jouney throuth the beautiful Dolomites, savouring the unique tastes of local tradition.  Saurnschotte cheese with tarragon/ pèrschtròmm from Sappada / Plodn - Dolomites
The pèrschtròmm (tarragon) widespread in the hauses'gardens of Sappada/Plodn is an aromatic herb used in traditional Sappada's cooking, especially for this make of the saurnschotte. The herb harvesting ( a variety of artemisa dracunculus) traditionally takes place in the period between the two Virgin Mary holidays ( 15/ 08 Assumption - 08/09 Nativity of Mary): once harvested, the leavers are chopped and preserved in salt. The acis ricotta cheese is produced by milk fermentation worked for a couple of days and seasoned with salt and pepper. this gives the herbs a special taste whis is intense and slightly spicy. Many housewivef in Sappada still produce this cheese over a wooden fire. The saurnschotte is made with soured whole milk left in a special cast iron container (schottehovn) on the plate of the stove until it gets the right consistency. At one time the ricotta cheese, was then stored in a jar or in a bowl (milchhovn) covered with water, in the basement or in wooden tubs ( schotteschòff). Home made surnschotte is the main ingredient of shottedunkate, a typical recipe of Sappada and mixes the sour ricotta with foam from polenta and the milk. The mixure is then seasoned with melted sizzing butter. It is also used as a filling for a variant of "gepitschta kropfn"( stuffed pinched ravioli) or can be served simply with bread or polenta. we invite you to try this ricotta cheese, a recipe handed down over the generations and rediscovered throuth local restaurants who reinterpreted the recipe and have included in their menus.
