You’ve never heard about skuta? 🙂 Skuta is a traditional Croatian ricotta-type cheese. From it you can prepare many different recipes, from sweets to savory meals; appetizer, main dish, dessert or just a snack. I made a nice skuta cheese with peaches recipe.
Recently when we were on vacation in my beautiful Croatia on the coast in Istra, we went to an amazing restaurant Monte where we ate a skuta dessert with oranges. Wow, an absolute taste explosion. After that I decided I am not coming back home without skuta cheese so we went to the farmers market to buy it.
Skuta is specific for its light but yet aromatic taste, it is so creamy and it fits perfect with salty and sweet.
This time we prepared both sweet and salty combination just to taste is it really that good. Honestly, it was not good, it was AMAZING!!!! So yummy that even brought it with myself on a business trip next day and ate it in the plane. 🙂
Check this out; skuta cheese mixed with olive oil, on top bitter zesty rucola and honey glazed peaches. BAM! You must try it and don’t be afraid to play around with some toppings. If you like this skuta cheese with peaches recipe, but you are not really a peaches fan? Don’t worry, grab some figs or pears, they also fit perfect.
