A wonderfully soft and creamy cheese produced by Ermitage - the leading producer of munster cheese.

Munster cheese was first created in the 7th century in the Vosges region of France. Monks in the area worked on different cheese making techniques in an effort to feed the starving populace. From this effort, Munster was born. This unique cheese features a slight orange tinge to its rind thanks to the washing process done during its maturation stage. The cheese itself is quite soft and melts extremely well.

The aging of the cheese can last from anywhere between 14 days and several weeks, depending on the size of the cheese wheel itself. The resulting palate is considered to be somewhere between mozzarella and a sharp cheddar. This can actually become far sharper and pungent the longer the cheese is allowed to age.

The cheese melts extremely well. Consider using this delicious cow’s milk cheese in your next grilled cheese or mix it into your next mac and cheese for extra umph and kick.

Storage Instructions

Cheeses (except brined ones in jars) should be stored in the crisper or the butter drawer of a refrigerator, not on the shelves themselves. This is to help regulate their temperature and humidity levels—and prevents the formation of mold. Once opened, they should not be kept in their original packaging. Soft cheeses with delicate rinds need to breathe, so they are best placed in glass containers lined with paper towels to absorb extra moisture. Leave the lid open a tiny bit for air to circulate and don’t forget to write up a label with the date you first opened the package. Kindly pay attention to the best before date label when you receive your cheese. Consume prior to date indicated.
