This cheese does smell – it is certainly true – but you must not let that put you off. Munster is a sweet and savoury, simply wonderful tasting cheese which as a long spicy taste.
The tradition in Alsace is to eat ‘Munster au Cumin’ which is Munster, obviously, served with boiled potatoes, cumin seeds and a glass of wine. It is an unpasteurised, washed rind cheese that is rubbed constantly in brine for 2 to 3 months to give its rind a distinct rich orange colour.
This AOC cheese imported by Jacques Hennart is made in the Vosges mountains in Alsace.
