So, what is y cuajo?

Y cuajo is a traditional food ingredient that has been used for centuries in Latin American cuisine. It is a natural coagulant derived from the stomachs of young ruminants, such as calves or goats, and is commonly used to make cheese. Y cuajo contains enzymes that break down milk proteins, causing the liquid to curdle and form solid cheese curds. This ingredient is highly valued for its ability to produce a rich, creamy texture and distinct flavor in cheese. It is also used in other culinary applications, such as making desserts and meat dishes. Despite the availability of alternative coagulants, y cuajo remains a popular and beloved ingredient in many traditional recipes.
