Queijo de coalho ("rennet cheese", "curd cheese", or coalho cheese) is a traditional Brazilian cheese from the NorthEast. It is a firm, lightweight yellowish white cheese with an elastic texture that is sold on a stick for roasting, since it doesn't melt when heated. It is quite a salty cheese with a slightly acidic taste. Handcrafted queijo de coalho is mostly produced from raw milk, but commercially produced versions are made from pasteurized milk. On the beaches of Brazil, you get coalho cheese as a cheap snack where it is cooked over a charcoal grill, often with a sprinkling of oregano or garlic-flavored sauce.
