Gjetost, Ski Queen 10/2.2#
Gjetost is the cheese that is traditional in a Norwegian breakfast and this sweet red-orange gourmet cheese does have a presence. Gjetost is made from the whey or buttermilk which is heated very slowly until the water has evaporated and the milk sugar forms a kind of brown caramelized paste. At this stage milk or cream may be added to change the fat content of the finished product. Produced in squares this cheese has no rind and is sold as soon as it is made. The texture may be hard or soft but it all has an unmistakable sweet, almost fudgy, caramel taste.
