    I had a very yummy cheese that was brought over from Switzerland. It was a light brownish color - firm but sort of soft. It sort of scraped off the cheese cutter...

    It was made from sheeps milk and was sort of sweet.

    Any ideas? I am not familiar with sheep/dairy...

    What other types of cheeses are sweet?

    Thanks-

    Hey

    There is not enough information there to help you with your question. There are a lot of cheeses you can make with sheep milk. In fact, in some recipes the milk type is interchangable. You should look at the cheese info on the goat board to see if any of the recipes match the type of cheese you found. It sounds yummy though.

    Try going to this site http://www.cheese.com/ and type in a search by milk and the descriptions there might tell you what it was, as you can tell by the list "Ewe" there is a lot of sheep cheese out there!

    You'd be looking for Getost cheese. Good stuff...a little goes a long way, it's so rich.

    You shouldn't have much problem. I live near a really small town and it is in the grocery store. I think it's a little red and white box with a picture of the brown cheese on it.
