Cheese Provolone Organic
Provolone Dolce is mild; it's made using calf's rennet, and is aged at the most for 3 months. As one might expect it's delicate, and has a creamy milky taste. It's a fine-end-of-dinner or cheese-platter-at-a-party type cheese, and also works well as an ingredient in the kitchen. Forms of Provolone dolce are small, up to a maximum of about 12 pounds. Provolone Piccante is sharp; it's made using goat or lamb's rennet, and is aged for up to a year. It's much drier than the Dolce and sharper; though some people will serve it at the close of a meal many prefer to use it as an ingredient. Forms of Provolone piccante can reach 200 pounds (the elongate shapes). Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled "organic," a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified,
