Asadero. A ball, loaf or plait of fresh cheese made with cow's milk, similar to Provolone and like a mild cheddar or Monterey Jack. It has a white, supple, elastic paste which melts well, so is good for cooking. It may be found weighing anything from 225 g - 5 kg (8 oz - 11 lb) and is particularly good for cooking as it has good melting properties. The Mennonites have had a strong role in producing this cheese.
