While Heber Valley Artisan Cheese isn’t the first to create a toasting cheese, they have definitely perfected it. This cheese is designed to be toasted, but it won’t melt. That’s right, it’s a cheese that won’t melt. This is a traditional Finnish cheese that you’ll definitely want more of. While some companies that offer versions of Juustolopeipä toast them before they sell them, Heber Valley Artisan Cheese wants you to experience the toasting process. It may sound odd, but toast some of this up, spackle a little bit of your favorite local jam or jelly on it, and go to town!
