Gjetost Cheese - Norway

The girl wanted to run into the global food store when we were out and about today...she was having a craving for some Tapioca Pearls and Red Beans in Coconut Milk - a treat we tried back in February.

We found her treat, which was right across from the cheese section - and as the girl and I both love cheese - I found something for us to try.

Ski Queen Gjetost Cheese from Norway.

When I unwrapped the cheese I was somewhat surprised to see that it looked like a big hunk of fudge. The cheese was soft and sweet!

I like sweet stuff and I like cheese - but I don't like them combined.

The girl liked the cheese.

Later I read about the process for making this cheese and it said "... made by boiling a mixture of milk, cream, and whey carefully for several hours so that the water evaporates. The heat turns the milk sugar into caramel which gives the cheese its characteristic taste."

Have you tried Falloom cheese - it is from somewhere in Europe and you fry it (no it doesn't get gummy or burn) - it is fantastic!!
