Description

Wisconsin Baby Swiss is made by substituting water for the milk's whey to slow bacterial action. Baby Swiss cheese has smaller holes and a milder flavor. Wisconsin Baby Swiss is often made from whole milk. This Wisconsin Baby Swiss Cheese is buttery, sweet and only slightly nutty, with a hickory smoked flavor. Try it with sweet fruits and berries, croissants and muffins. Founded in 1885 by five dairy farmers, Chalet Cheese Cooperative continues to flourish as a cooperative, owned and operated by its 29 members. One of the cheese they specialize in is Swiss, emphasising on top quality and true workmanship. American cheesemakers, not Swiss, modernized Swiss production. About fifty years ago, the only way to protect Swiss wheels as they ripened was to allow a hard rind to form. The advent of plastic packaging, which keeps moisture in but allows carbon dioxide to escape, made it possible to produce rindless Swiss cheese in blocks. Rindless blocks were developed for better yield in foodservice; retailers appreciate the higher yield and ease of cutting.

Great with fresh apples
By Carol Harris

This was a great tasting cheese! We found that we liked it best with sliced fresh apples and popcorn. A perfect evening snack while watching tv or a movie. I also used it in mac and cheese and the smoky nutty flavor was a great enhancer to a normally blandish dish. I also used it sliced in sandwiches and melted over eggs. A very versatile cheese to have around to make an interesting flavor pop in nearly every type of dish.
