Havarti

A smooth and supple cheese originally from Denmark, Havarti has been perfected and enhanced by Wisconsin cheesemakers. A special Wisconsin-style Havarti was developed at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and is firmer in texture and more buttery in flavor than other varieties. Havarti is delicious when plain. However, some prefer flavored varieties such as jalapeño, pesto, caraway, or dill.
