Any "Mythbusters" fan would know that Garrotxa (pronounced Gar - rotta) is the preffered cheese for use in Cannons. It's a small, almost sphere shaped cheese that has a dense pate and sweet, nutty flavour with a grey mould rind.
Originally, Garroxta cheese was only produced from raw milk in the Garrotxa area of Catalonia in Spain.
Garrotxa is matured for a few months and develops a texture that can be crumbly when extensively matured. Because of its' mild flavour, people who dont usually enjoy the hercinity of goats cheese can usually change their mind on tasting Garrotxa.
