for a variety of dishes or as a stand alone cheese with summer sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella should be a regular choice for weekly grocery shoppers. this mozzarella cheese is nothing like the processed shredded cheese that most grab as they run through the grocery aisles.
this fresh cheese is moist, flavorful and melts beautifully in many Italian recipes. since this is a fresh product, once the seal on the cheese container is opened, the cheese must be used within a few days. this product does spoil rapidly, which gives thought to what must be added to that shredded product often used. it seems that cheese can last for months in the refrigerator.
consider trying the fresh mozzarella when preparing baked pasta dishes or pizza. this fresh product also pairs nicely with ham, olives and crostini.
