This herbal Pecorino Cheese is covered and aged in Hemp
Grate this type of cheese over pastas, salads, and even pizzas.
Use instead of pecorino romano for a cacio e pepe with a vibrant, grassy flavor.
Sanniti Pecorino Cheese with Hemp (also known as Pecorino alla Canapa) is an Italian cheese made from sheep's milk. This Pecorino cheese wheel is covered in hemp leaves, imparting a unique herbal flavor on the cheese once it has been properly aged.
You can use this herbal cheese in recipes that call for pecorino siciliano or other pecorinos. Grate or shred in the same way that you would parmigiano reggiano for pizza and pasta dishes. Or enjoy it sliced on a cheese board with fresh fruit or on a charcuterie board alongside cured meats.
