Vacherin is made from pasteurised cow’s milk, which offers a full-flavoured, slightly acidic taste with a resinous flavour from the spruce bark that encircles it. The cheese becomes almost liquid after maturation. It has a greyish-yellow blanched rind which has to be removed before eating it. This rare and luxury cheese is eaten like a Fondue.
The history of this cheese dates back to around 200 years and is only produced only from 15th August to 31st March when the cows have come down from their high pastures in the shadow of the Mont D’or. In Paris they bake it,but in the Jura where the cheese comes from, they just spoon it straight from the box.
