Tilsiter is a fragrant, surface-ripened cheese that is sure to satisfy. Tilsit is made from partially skimmed pasteurized cow's milk and is semi-firm with a springy texture, dotted with irregularly spaced tiny holes. Look for a mild flavor that's delicate with spicy undertones. It can be cubed for use in salads, heated for addition to sauces, melted over potatoes, flans, or on burgers. Often flavored with caraway seed and peppercorns, Tilsit is a complement to hearty brown/rye breads and dark beers.
