Mozzarella Cheese, Shredded

Mozzarella Cheese, Shredded

Description

It is smooth, mild, and slightly sweet/sour with a distinct milk flavor. The texture is creamy and much softer than mass-processed mozzarella. Fresh mozzarella is generally white, but may vary seasonally to slightly yellow depending on the animal's diet.

Pack size: 5# bag

Applications/Techniques

Wonderful melting cheese for pizzas, pastas, and more.

History

Traditional mozzarella is made from water buffalo (not North American buffalo or bison as many mistakenly think) milk, and its flavor is highly prized. Since these animals are herded in only a few countries, primarily Italy and Bulgaria, most mozzarella is now made from cow's milk.
