    Switzerland 1/4 Wheel Cheese Product ID: PIR150854 Mifroma

  • "Thank you soooo....much the corn souffle was great....I can't get it in my area any more and this was a quick convenient option....I ordered 2 cases and they came frozen solid.....I shared my goodies with my friends and family because they can't get the corn souffle either. I will order more in the future, I have told everyone who you are, the only thing they balked at was the shipping....but I said if you order in more quantity the shipping is less and if you count in if we had to drive 100 miles to get it the price of gas, etc.

    Produced since 1115 in the area surround-ing the little village of Gruyere in Western Switzerland, this much-loved cheese is still made in local dairies according to the original traditional recipe. With its distinctive, buttery, caramel flavor, this is one of Switzerlands greatest cheeses and can be enjoyed mild or mature. The character of this superior cheese is due to its specific production methods, which, in accordance with AOP requirements, remain true to the original recipe and follow time-honored techniques. Gruyere AOP is prepared from the finest fresh milk from cows fed on grass during the summer and hay during the winter. The use of any additives is prohibited. After two or three months maturation, the Gruyere AOP wheels arrive at the Mifroma caverns from local village dairies. The cheese is then ripened over several months in sandstone caves that benefit from 96% humidity and a constant temperature of 55.4 degree F. It is in this exceptional environment that Gruyere AOP acquires its succulent character. During the five-month maturation period, the cheese rounds are regularly turned and brushed with salt water. These proven methods, an extended aging process and the great care given to this majestic product confer Gruyere AOP its incomparable flavor. Gruyere AOP takes pride of place on any cheese board. A savory end to any meal, this fine cheese lends itself to the preparation of tasty hot dishes and is a key ingredient in authentic Swiss fondue. The fruity taste of the Gruyere AOP wheels varies according to their maturity. Gruyere AOP Mild has buttery notes, hints of almond and caramel and a slightly elastic texture.
