Itimat Mihalic Cheese
Mihalic Peynir is a Turkish hard cheese made from sheep's milk. It originated 200 years ago during the Ottoman era in the northwestern city of Bursa. Made from unpasteurized milk, Mihalic Peynir is stored in brine. First, the curds are placed in hot water and stirred. Later they are left in the water to harden and acquire a firm, slightly elastic texture. And finally, the cheese is salted and dried.
It is a great substitute for Parmesan cheese. Mihalic Peynir tastes delectable when grated over salads or in baked dishes.
