Description

A cheese closely related to Mozzarella, Provolone is distinguishable by its fuller flavors, achieved through the use of more cultures. Early cheesemakers originally used ropes to hang and cure Provolone, then reused the ropes to transport the cheese by horseback. Provolone is crafted from fresh local milk, brined, and hung to age in special curing rooms to develop its signature flavor and tantalizing aroma. The flavor is mild and buttery.
