Sicily's milk-producing livestock production consists of sheep, goats and cows, in that order. In practice, more Sicilian cheese is produced from cow's milk than from goat's milk, but there are more goats than cows in Sicily. Virgil and other classical writers mention the flourishing export market for Sicilian cheeses in Greece. Certain Sicilian cheeses made in ancient times are still made today, though others were introduced by the Arabs, Normans and Longobards during the Middle Ages. It is true that many traditional Sicilian cheeses are made from sheep's milk, but some of the better-known ones are made from cow's milk. Here are some of the better known Sicilian cheeses: pecorino, ragusano, maiorchino, piacentino, provola, ricotta.....
The paste of the cheese has a white color tending to yellow.
The Sicilian Secondo Sale is a semi-matured cheese made with sheep's milk and is one of the oldest among those produced in Italy. It is a sheep's cheese with a compact texture and you can buy both pecorino with pepper and one without pepper from us. Buy Second Salt pecorino and enrich your dinners with flavor.
After about 20 days of seasoning, it is covered in a crust of ground pistachios and is ready for consumption. Its taste is sweet and aromatic (due to the presence of pistachio), the texture is soft and slightly crumbly.
