Mizithra or Myzithra is an old Greek cheese and similar to an Italian Ricotta cheese, but a lot dryer. Made from sheep's milk, the flavor is more pronounced than the ricotta: rather nutty and salty.
This Greek cheese has a very dry and crumbly texture; it is very easy to cut and grate, you can almost grate it with a knife or fork.
This cheese works wonderfully blended into pasta dishes; Mizithra does not melt fully. Many know this cheese from the Mizithra-Romano cheese blend used by Old Spaghetti Factory.
Each ball of Mizithra weight about 1.2-1.5 pounds.
Ingredients:pasteurized sheep's milk and cream, whey and salt.
