Provolone Aged

Provolone is a traditional, creamery, stretched, curd cheese that is produced in various shapes. Its thin, hard rind is golden-yellow and shiny and sometimes waxed. Provolone cheese can be of various types. Dolce (mild Provolne) is aged for two to three months, and it is supple and smooth with a thin waxed rind. It is generally used as a table cheese. Aged for six months to two years, it is darker with small holes and a spicy flavor. Young Provolone is mild and lightly spicy. Older cheeses have a deeper straw-colored paste which can develop small cracks. Provolone is an all-purpose cheese used for cooking, dessert purposes and even grating.
