Greased and buttered buffalo (cheese)


What is the butter or the butter?

The burro is a cheese with spun dough formed by a puff of buffalo cheese in which a scoop of butter is placed inside. The butter is obtained from the residual serum of the processing of the spun paste, which is centrifuged and to which a spherical shape is given. Later, during the processing of the spun pasta, bags of pasta are created in which the butter balls are inserted. Depending on the shape, the product is called "Burro", when it is lengthened and has the head, or "burred", when it is packaged in a more nodular form and is without head; Although the characteristics of the shape vary depending on the manufacturer and are not influential on the final characteristics of the product. It is a very fatty cheese, born from the need to preserve, especially in past times, the butter for as long as possible, keeping the taste unchanged until the time of consumption. The burr is cut into round slices with the central butter, generally consumed fresh, smeared on hot bread croutons and combined with young red wines.


Produced in the provinces of Naples, Caserta and Salerno.
