Norwegian Brown Cheese Recipes (scroll down to get them).
Brunost is Norway’s most iconic cheese and you can read all about what it is and its origins here.
What makes brown cheese so special is that it irrevocably represents the traditional Norwegian farm life; everything from the romantic notions of the summer seter to the hard labor and struggles faced, as well as the successes and innovation that has steered the dairy to what it is today. It provides a connection to the natural landscape of Norway and highlights the quality of the dairy products found here. In some varieties, the tanginess of the goat’s milk is so prominent that it feels as though you are tasting the farm itself. So, for those who appreciate knowing where their food is sourced, this is an absolute sign of farm to table. Utilizing whey, a by-product of cheesemaking, means it’s also a sustainable approach to food waste. At the end of the day, though, people love brown cheese because it happens to be incredibly delicious.
