Italian Cheese Cacciocavallo Silano DOP 4.5-5 lb.

Caciocavallo Silano - cow's milk hard cheese DOP - 4.5-5 lb/2-2.3 kg, Italy.

This elite Italian DOP cheese is firm and stringy, made from cow milk. The traditional technique involves hanging the molds astride horizontal rods, which leaves characteristic grooves on the cheese's rind. It delivers a smooth, mild salty taste, and is excellent for pasta dishes.
This specialty hails from the Southern Italian provinces of Abbruzo, Calabria, Campania and Sicilia.
Caciocavallo is a traditional pasta filata (stretched curd) cheese made from cow's milk. Other pasta filata type cheeses are Mozzarella and Provolone.
Caciocavallos are gourd-shaped and come to us in pairs, tied together by a rope that loops around the "neck" of each cheese.
After an aging period of three months, this ancient cheese takes on a tangy, meaty flavor with hints of anise and almonds.
