This is the original Swiss cheese, world famous for its distinctive holes and one-of-a-kind flavor. First produced more than eight centuries ago in the canton of Bern in the valley of the Emme River, Emmentaler AOP is still made in giant 200-pound wheels.
Emmentaler is always made from fresh, raw milk produced by grass-fed cows in sustainable meadows on family farms. Expert cheesemakers age it for a minimum of 120 days in the microclimate of the Emmi cellars. This endlessly popular cheese plays an essential role in Swiss communities, commerce and culture—and in American cuisine of many kinds. Add this to fondue, omelettes, or to top french onion soup. Pairs well with Gewurztraminer or Saison.
Ingredients: Raw cultured cow's milk and nonfat milk, salt, enzymes, animal rennet.
