Tilsit is a surface ripened cheese first made by Dutch settlers in East Prussia, near the town of Tilsit, in the mid-19th Century. They were trying to recreate their beloved Gouda, but the cheese became infected with moulds, yeasts, and bacteria in a damp cellar and so, Tilsit was born. Also known as Tilsit Havarti, this cheese has a fuller and more intense flavor than Havarti, but is milder than German Tilsit. Made of partially skimmed milk with a brownish-orange washed rind, Danish Tilsit is more yellow in color than Havarti but has a similar springy, elastic, semi-firm texture, ideal for slicing. Danish Tilsit also has a piquant flavor, making it a great table cheese to enjoy with a Danish beer. Try this versatile cheese cubed in salads, melted in sauces, on potatoes, flans, or on burgers.
Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
