Traditional, farmhouse, hard cheese made from cow's milk. This wheel-shaped cheese has a natural, very tough rind, brushed and oiled. Saanen is a very hard, brittle cheese, with a deep yellow interior that is intensely fruity. It resembles Parmesan or Sbrinz and is good grating cheese that will keep almost indefinitely. Saanen was traditionally reserved for special occasions, when pieces of the cheese would be shaved off and served with a glass of fruity, local wine. This Swiss grating cheese is matured for up to seven years.
