Erzincan Tulumu

Cheese for Sale in the Spice Bazaar

Erzincan Tulumu is a pungent sheep’s milk cheese made in the Erzincan province of Eastern Turkey. Traditionally, it was aged in goat skin. You can see vendors in Istanbul’s Spice Bazaar unwrapping it from its animal skin sheath here. Today, more and more is aged in plastic tubs, a process that has changed the way the cheese tastes and that leaves ridges behind on the surface, as you can see in the photo above.
