I'm confused, everything I've read about Havarti says it's the cheapest continental cheese you can buy :?: Couldn't find any recipes though.

Good day Saucisson!If you buy a block of Havarti cheese the size of a deck of cards it costs about $7.I can buy a block of Cheddae cheese as long as my arm for the same price! I have been searching myself for quite some time for Havarti cheese with no luck,I thank you for your efforts!

I completely failed to notice you were in Canada :oops: In the UK it is supposedly very cheap, I saw a mention of �1.39 for 200g (though the post was a few years old).

I was curious, so I googled:

http://www.cheese.com/Description.asp?Name=Havarti

Looks like a cheese I buy from Ikea when i'm there, though Ikea cheeses are swedish.

Can this cheese be bought in your regular UK supermarket?

The info I came up with mentioned Tescos (that's where the price came from) and Waitrose but it's not something I've ever spotted, I'll keep my eyes peeled next time I'm out.

I used to buy it years ago in Safeway in Cheltenham. It was a great favourite with my daughter, but I haven't seen it in the shops for ages. I don't remember it being particularly cheap. I can imagine Ikea doing it though.

Ikea??? I thought they only did furniture.

Is it self assembly?

You must have missed the food hall with all the meat balls and crisp bread the size of cartwheels!

the difficulty with havarti is getting the innoculum for the internal ripening

Aha! found some:
Sainsbury's Danish Havarti, produced in Denmark for Sainsbury's �1.69 for 200g. According to the packet it has a smooth texture with a delicate buttery flavour.

Thanks Dave,

I'll check it out, my daughter used to love it and she's coming over this weekend, it will make a nice surprise (along with my home made camembert, which I've been saving).

Cheers

Hi
Ikea used to do raindeer but I think the children did not like Santa having to walk

If u buy the starter then the recipe is free.

Was also wondering if one blized some of the cheese and added to the curds if it would broduce the Havarti, just do a recipe for a washed process.

:)

heres another one; http://glengarrycheesemaking.on.ca/starterscultures.htm
