The cheese that thinks it's a carmel! The cheese of Norwegian skiers! The cheese that can be hard enough to eat sliced but soft enough to spread on toast! It's magically made from goats' milk. It's pronounced "YAY-toast," which is cute. Its tag is "Ski Queen Cheese!"
I love this stuff. As Alyson said, it does look like caramel and it tastes a bit like what you would imagine a cheese's version of what caramel should taste like. I know that sounds a little gross, but if you like cheeses more adventurous than velveeta, try Gjetost
I have walked by this cheese for YEARS! Always curious, never willing to plunk down a few dollars to try it. When I saw that Alyson recommended it, I knew it was time for me to get with the program! The next time I was in the store I picked up a cube. Ah, the power of cheese, err, ThisNext! Gjetost is a curious cheese. Though sugar is not on the list of igredients, its kinda sweet. The cheese melts away like a caramel. There is a good reason why the packaging suggests you cut it with a cheese plane - too much and it becomes overwhelming. The taste is quite mild at first but the goat milk comes out in the end. If you have with apples and pears, I imagine the goat taste would be supressed. Its good stuff. Its definitely a cheese you need to check out if you love cheeses.
I lived in Norway for a couple of years and ate this almost daily. It is great on cold waffles and/ or with most fuits & jams. Some folks may also like to add a little peanut butter.
