Mysost

Definition

Food

  • A fawn, slightly sweet caramel-flavoured cheese made from the whey from a mixture of cows’ and goats’ milk in a similar manner to Ricotta. The whey is boiled and reduced to a brown sticky mass containing whey proteins, lactose and caramelized sugars. It is stirred whilst cooling to a solid to prevent crystallization of the sugars. Usually cut or shaved in very thin slices and served on crispbread, but also used in cooking.
