Sap Sago Cheese is a 100% natural cheese with a deliciously distinctive flavor. The hard, low-fat, pungent grating cheese has a history that dates back to 1463 from the mountains of Canton Glarus in Switzerland. Also known as Swiss Schabziger®, this unique cheese is still manufactured with the same recipe from a thousand years ago. It uses skimmed cow's milk mixed with aromatic blue fenugreek, which makes it so healthy and gives it its characteristic aroma and and attractive green herb color.
Swiss Schabziger® comes packaged in a 3-ounce cone. Its uses are endless -- grate it over boiled or baked potatoes, noodles, pasta, pizza, soups and salads and even over apple and cherry pies. The Swiss often mix Sap Sago in equal parts with butter for a very tasty spread for fresh breads.
This almost fat-free cheese is for the more adventuresome. It keeps almost indefinitely at room temperature (however, we keep it under refrigeration) and you'll find that a little goes a long way. Imported from Switzerland.
