Description

This is a 5.5 pound loaf of Norwegian breakfast cheese Gjetost. Gjetost packs a unique sweetness..it is sweet like caramel and has a dense and rich texture. This fudge-like cheese is formed into rind-less cylinders and is best when sliced wafer thin and enjoyed on toast or fruit. Made from a blend of pasteurized goat and cow milk that’s aged 1-2 months. The caramelized goat whey gives this cheese a sweet and savory taste that's truly one of a kind. In Norwegian GjetOst simple means goat (Gjet) cheese (Ost). The real name of this cheese is GudbrandsdalsOst.
