Had some of this the other night grated over pasta. Anyone know how it is cured/preserved? I would assume its heavily salted and aged but would be interested to hear more.

    Here's some info from Wikipedia. It's spelled with two "t", as I just learned.

      Brined and/or salted, pressed, dried.
