Black Pepper Pecorino
Black Pepper Pecorino, also known as Pecorino Pepato, has been made in Sicily for over 2,000 years. Trader Joe’s Black Pepper Pecorino, which you’ll find in our cheese case this holiday season, was not made that long ago, but it was made using age-old production methods. Sheep grazing in meadows along Sicily’s hillsides produce the high quality milk used for this cheese. Whole black peppercorns are added before it’s aged. After four months, this Pecorino is complete – a salty, peppery, hard cheese that’s a true delicacy. Use it to make an extra flavorful version of Cacio e Pepe, pepper a salad with some chunks, or add it to a holiday cheese board. And, since wine really should accompany cheese, pair it with a nice Chianti. You’ll find wedges of Black Pepper Pecorino mingling with our other cheeses throughout the holiday season for $9.99 per pound.
