Mozzarella

Today Mozzarella cheese rates second only to Cheddar in popularity in the United States. Mozzarella is made through a process called pasta filata, in which curds are heated in water or whey and then stretched and kneaded.

Sliced, cubed or shredded, Mozzarella cheese is perfect for melting on pizzas, sandwiches and pasta dishes. Fresh Mozzarella is often rolled into a ball and soaked in brine, offering a clean, milky flavor and soft, delicate texture that enhances salads, pastas and casseroles.
