Provolone

provolone

Description:

Provolone is an Italian cheese that originated in Southern Italy. It is slightly piquant when young becoming sharper as aged. Firm texture becomes granular with age. Wisconsin cheesemakers produce smoked and unsmoked Provolone. Producers originally tied rope around Provolone to hang it in the curing rooms. The rope also came in handy for transporting the cheese on horseback.
