What’s more of a crowd-pleaser than mozzarella? Miniature balls of mozzarella, like Murray’s Ciliegine. The name refers to their cherry-like size, each less than an ounce of tender cheese, with a clean, lactic flavor. Made from whole milk according to a family tradition, this is classic fresh mozzarella made petite. They're party-ready, whether skewered, marinated, added to a salad, or simply drizzled with Murray’s Italian EVOO and served with Prosciutto San Daniele and Mitica® Taralli.

“These are so fun on a skewer with cherry tomatoes and slices of Genoa salami—like a portable antipasti platter.”

  • Murray’s Ciliegine Mozzarella is made from farm-fresh pasteurized cow’s milk to give it that clean, milky flavor, with notes of grass and sweet cream and a subtle saltiness.
  • To make this mozzarella, whole milk curds are submerged in hot water and gently pulled to create the smooth, tender texture.
  • It’s made by a family-run Italian cheesemaker in New Jersey, carrying forward the owners’ family cheesemaking traditions from Italy.
  • The ciliegine are packaged in a container with purified water.

While harder cheeses can stay fresh for up to two to three weeks when wrapped tightly and unopened, fresh style cheeses are best consumed within a few days. The best thing to do is to keep the cheese in one of your refrigerator drawers or the vegetable bin; this will help to keep your cheese from drying out. If your cheese is packed in olive oil or brine, store any leftovers in the liquid and follow package instructions. All cheeses and meats are perishables—by definition they degrade over time—so we encourage our customers to enjoy the cheese while it's in peak condition!
