Unlike other cheeses, such as cheddar, which have dozens of varieties and brands, Jarlsberg is the one and only brand for this type of cheese. That being the case, the secrets of the recipe for Jarlsberg cheese are closely guarded by only a select few people in the world. So what makes Jarlsberg cheese so special? This Norwegian cheese is actually the end result of months of research by professor Ole Martin Ystgaard at the Dairy Institute at the Agricultural University of Norway. In the mid 1950s, the professor and his team of researchers attempted many different experiments to make the perfect cheese. Jarlsberg was literally designed by agricultural scientists to be the best-tasting cheese in the country. As such, it is only natural that this cheese pairs perfectly with just about everything. Jarlsberg is frequently melted on burgers and sandwiches, as well as used for dips, pizzas, and more.
A mild semi-soft, part skim cheese made from cow’s milk. Jarlsberg has a buttery, rich texture with a mild, nutty flavor characterized by large round holes. It is an all-purpose cheese, good for both cooking and for eating as a snack. Jarlsberg’s 22 lb. wheels are packed individually. Jarlsberg is the #1 selling specialty cheese in the USA.
