Myzithra or Mizithra (Mi-zee-thra) is a traditional Greek whey cheese made from pasteurized sheep milk. It has been manufactured in Greece for thousands of years and is considered the ancestor of all Greek whey cheeses. There is no rennet added to this cheese, rather the curd is treated with the whey from the previous batch of Myzrithra.
Aged or "dried" Myzythra has a hard texture and a salty tangy taste. In this form, Myzythra is usually savoured as a grating or cooking cheese. Delicious grated over pasta.
