Description: For the table or for grating, Ricotta Salata is a light alternative to other sheep's milk cheeses.

Ricotta means, re-cook, in Italian and accurately describes haw this cheese is made. Whey leftover from cheese production is reheated to 185 degrees F and the particles that separate from the whey are scooped and drained. The result is a fresh ready to eat cheese that can also be salted, pressed, and aged. Ricotta Salata for grating is made from sheep's milk and is pressed and salted before being aged up to a year to provide a grating cheese that is less salty than other sheep's milk grating cheeses.
