Primosale Cheese (*)
Primosale is produced mainly in Sicily and Sardinia, made with sheep's or cow's milk.
It's believed that Primosale was mentioned in Homer's Odyssey as the cheese made by Cyclops.
The name of the cheese means "first salt" referring to the early stages of his maturation.
Primosale is delicious as it is, fresh and tasty.
