Xynomyzithra is a cheese indigenous to Chania, Crete. It is a low fat cheese, similar to soft myzithra and anthotyro in texture. It is made from sheep’s and/or goat milk but I do not know if anything else is added to it. I only know that it is left 24 hours at room temperature and it gets this slightly sour taste.

It is ideal for pites (pies) and in savory dishes.

It can hold for 2- 3 days in the fridge but for a long period of time in the deep freezer.
