Crescenza is part of the family of stracchini and its name may derive from the Latin Crescentia, to grow, which means "grow, expand, develop," because during processing the curd increases in volume, that "rises". This is a soft cheese made from cow's milk or partly skimmed milk, heated and rennet is added. The curd obtained is repeatedly mixed and poured into containers with holes, so as to facilitate the draining. Follow the stages of stewing and salting, and it is by immersion in brine.
