Reblochon Recipe (Traditional)

5 2 reviews
Print Recipe
Reblochon is a fantastic, small disc of cheese that oozes out of its rind to greet you with beautiful aromatics and flavors. It is also a cheese traditionally made with raw milk that ripens in less than 60 days. And herein lies the problem, because it is made from raw milk and aged just under 2 months it does not pass our US regulations and has been a restricted import for the past few decades. Yes, there is a pasteurized version, but it's just not the same cheese. But because we're home cheese makers we can make this wonderful cheese ourselves. Enjoy!
