Sliced German Emmenthal
What is German Emmenthal Cheese made out of?
Emmenthal is a semihard Swiss cow’s milk cheese. It has a relatively high fat content and is rich in calcium, as well as copper and phosphorous. Emmenthal is distinguished by large walnut-sized holes or “eyes” formed during the fermentation process. It ranges from mild and buttery to fruity and full-flavored, depending on its maturity. It has good melting properties and is a traditional ingredient in cheese fondue.
Emmenthal has very good melting properties, which makes it ideal for cheese fondue or any dish that requires melted cheese, such as gratins and casseroles, grilled cheese sandwiches, pasta, and egg dishes. It can also be eaten cold, layered into sandwiches, or served on a cheese platter with fruit and nuts.
