A lot cheeses are made in Mexico, including panela, fresco, ranchero, oaxaca, asadero, mozzarella, morral, adobero, and cottage.
The 78 samples included fresh cheese (15 samples), cotija cheese (15 samples), adobero cheese (16 samples), oaxaca cheese (16 samples), and requeson (16 samples).
aureus; however, a differential contamination between the different types of cheeses was observed, with high risk of contamination in adobero cheese (12, 95% CI 1.75 to 94.20; p = 0.002), cotija cheese (8.25, 95% CI 1.32 to 56.17; p = 0.007), and fresco cheese (8.25, 95% CI 1.32 to 56.17; p = 0.007) (Table 2).
There are a woodworker, a bricklayer (or rather an adobero
), musicians, a storyteller, healers, cow-chip tea enthusiasts, the evil eye, old landmarks, and even a short biography of Mason Brewer, the Texan black folklorist who died in 1975.
Sometimes we have local dirt analyzed at the National Park Service lab, but of course all you have to do is talk to the old adoberos
, who put it in their hands, rub it, and come up with the same conclusions," he says with a smile.
