Abondance de Savoie

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.
