Haute-Savoie, Abondance (Alps Mountains)
of Milk: Cow
Abondance de Savoie is pressed, brine-soaked & aged,
during which time it is rubbed with salt. This cheese may replace or combine mountain cheeses such as Comte or Gruyere for
melting purposes to add extra dimensions of flavor. The texture is firm with a tight paste & the flavor is full, buttery
and nutty with a fruity tang and a grassy finish. This cheese is made only from the mixed race breed of cattle that carries
the same name of that region.
