Gruyere Recipe

Print Recipe
This is the classic 'mountain cheese' of France and Switzerland differentiated from the larger Ementhaller cheese by the much smaller or nonexistent holes. Gruyere, made from full fat raw milk, depends on a high temperature scald to dry the curd properly so the cheese is able to have a long aging period of 8-14 months.
