NORWAY. A quintessentially Norwegian Brunost (“brown cheese”). Naturally sweet with a smooth mild caramel taste from a unique blend of 80% cow’s milk and 20% goat milk.
Gjetost’s color is a deep caramel from scalded lactose sugars. The taste is sweet when first placed on the palate, then becomes bittersweet; may be an “acquired” taste for some. A perfect dessert cheese!
