Mitteleuropa, Bayern - Herstellen von Bergkäse im Allgäu

Central Europe, Bavaria - Preparation of Mountain-cheese in Allgäu

In an Alpine hut milk is heated in a kettle above an open fire and made to curdle by adding rennin and cultures. The cheese mass that is thus formed is filled into a mould and pressed for approximately 24 hours. Before the cheese is placed in a saline bath, it is stored for approximately 12 hours in a cellar.
