The newest cheese to enter the aging room is Havarti. This traditional Danish sandwich cheese is made with raw milk and develops into a full flavor, creamy cheese in 75-90 days. The cheese making process includes throwing pails of hot water into the curds and whey to heat up the mixture, instead of using the more traditional method of adding heat to the water bath which in turn heats up the curd. The cheese is pressed into 15 lbs rounds that are waxed before the aging process is started.
The aged cheese develops tiny “eyes” in the body of the cheese during the aging process.. The cheese is great added to a sandwich or omelets. Dried dill weed is added to some of the cheese to create a version of the cheese that in not only pleasant to the taste buds but also to the eye.
People that sample the cheese and have purchased Havarti from the grocery store remark how Argyle Cheese Farmer’s Havarti has more flavors and is creamer. The cheesemaker believes the difference is the quality of the milk, the aging process and the cheese is made with raw milk not pasteurized as the store Havarti is.
