Unlike its grocery store cousin this string cheese is made the old fashioned way. First it's kneaded like salt water taffy, extruded into rope and then most importantly soaked in brine (salt water) to dry it and give it a salty taste. This string cheese is then smoked to add additional flavor.
This is a popular snack cheese. It is a favorite with children because it is fun to pull apart the strings that make up the rod shapes so they can be eaten individually. For those on a low-sodium diet, soaking string cheese in water will remove some of the salt content. Like many semisoft cheeses, it can be kept refrigerated for up to two weeks.
