Gruyere Cheese (Natural)

Description

Gruyère is a type of Swiss cheese that is sweet but slightly salty, with a flavor that varies widely with age. It is often described as creamy and nutty when young, becoming earthy, complex and more assertive with age. Gruyère is a cow's milk cheese that features a few small holes or "eyes," but they are fewer, and smaller, than Emmental which is another variety of Swiss cheese.

Available in a 6# block.
