What are Bocconcini?

Bocconcini alla panna di bufala, created by blending fresh Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP with fresh cream, are still manufactured in the provinces of Naples, Caserta, and Salerno. Bocconcino di Bufala Campana DOP, which is just Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP in an egg-sized style, is also created.

In addition, whole cow’s milk bocconcini are made, which have a softer consistency than ordinary mozzarella due to their increased liquid content. Most Italian grocery stores have bocconcini. Caprese salad or spaghetti with them are two popular uses.

How to Make Bocconcini Salad?

This salad has bocconcini and bite-sized balls of fresh mozzarella. Water buffalo’s milk mozzarella di bufala, popular in central and southern Italy, is a better choice since it is creamier and softer than mozzarella prepared from cow’s milk.

  • Eight cherry tomatoes halved.

  • ½ cup Belgian endive leaves

  • ½ cup coarsely chopped arugula stems included

What is Bocconcini?

The little, egg-shaped ball of mozzarella cheese is known as a boconcini. Napolitan water buffalo’s milk is used to make these semi-soft, white, rindless mild cheeses, which originated in Naples. Water buffalo and cow’s milk are commonly used to make them nowadays. It’s a spongy texture, absorbs tastes, and is packed in whey or a water solution.

In the same way, pasta filata is prepared, the curds are dipped into boiling whey and then kneaded, pulled, and stretched. These cheeses are sometimes called “Buffalo eggs” because they resemble hard-boiled eggs in size, shape, and color.

Bocconcini can also be obtained as baby (Bambini) bocconcini, which are smaller than regular bocconcini and are the size of big grapes or cherries. Ciliagine is another name for this smaller variant (small cherries).
