Folded cheese with mint

Folded cheese with a mint is a very typical Eastern Mediterranean cheese, which has become very popular in other parts of the world. This cheese is very similar to a Mozzarella but incorporates mint leaves to give it that minty, refreshing flavour. Firm in texture, Folded cheese is stored frozen and has a six months refrigerated life. It is placed in a brine solution for longer lasting storage, making it salty and heat resistant. The brine solution needs to be washed off before the cheese is consumed with either pita or tortilla. It pairs well with ciders and fruit beers.
