    Ever notice the words engraved on the skin of the Parmigiano Reggiano wheel? A redid plastic belt containing the Parmigiano Reggiano name (printed again and again), the processing plant's number, and the month and year the cheddar was made is folded over the cheddar for around two days so as to engrave the mark name on the skin.

    When the cheddar has gotten hard enough to remain all alone, each wheel is shipped off to a saline solution shower, a room brimming with warm water blended in with Mediterranean ocean salt. It is left to brackish water for around 20 to 25 days. This cycle is basic to giving the cheddar its unmistakable pungent flavor.

    At long last, the wheels are put on wooden retires and matured for at least a year and as long as three years. At regular intervals, the cheddar wheels are pivoted and cleaned either physically or with an uncommon machine. The last wheel weighs around 100 pounds!


    Parmigiano Reggiano has a sharp and complex flavor. Its serious appetizing quality is offset by fruity and nutty notes. It has a mark surface that is somewhat lumpy, because of the salt gems which become more articulated all through the maturing cycle.

    Discussing age, the flavor and surface of Parmigiano Reggiano vary contingent upon how long it's matured. A year old cheddar will be lighter in flavor and smoother in surface while a three year old cheddar will flaunt more perplexing flavors, a more grounded pungent kick, and a more granular surface.

    No wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano cheddar is actually the equivalent. Since it is a craftsman item delivered throughout the entire year, there is changeability with the season and the day.

    At a year, the ConsorzioParmigiano Reggiano, the administering body that manages that norms of Parmigiano Reggiano, examines each wheel. To test its quality, the agent taps each haggle to ensure there aren't any breaks or openings. When it finishes the assessment, it is given the blessing (in a real sense!) and would now be able to be esteemed the title Parmigiano Reggiano DOP.
