More Information

This cheese has a significant grassy and mushroomy taste underlined by a delicate tang at the end. In the initial month of ripening, Limburger is firmer and more crumbly but starts to become chalky and soft at the end of six weeks. After two months, the cheese is much smoother and creamy. At three months, Limburger finally acquires the infamous aroma due to smear-ripening with solutions of bacteria.

Our artisanal cheese makers prepare this cheese from pasteurised cow’s milk sourced from local, organic farms. As a result, the flavor of the cheese is mild despite the stinky aroma. The exterior of the cheese is covered with a thin pale, orange-brown rind, an effect of regular washings.

Limburger originated in the historical Duchy of Limburg, now divided among three countries; Germany, Belgium and Netherlands. The cheese is popularly known for its stinky aroma. Today, most of the cheese is exclusively made in Germany, making them the sole producers in Europe.

Even though nose-kicking limburger got its start in the Belgium town of Limburg, most consider it a German cheese. Bavarians have been making it in great quantities since the 1800s and German immigrants brought this flavorful cheese to Wisconsin. These days, Wisconsin claims limburger as our own — literally, since Chalet Cheese Coop is the only cheese factory in the United States that produces this unique, aroma filled cheese. We recommend you get to know limburger, but definitely store it in very tightly-lidded glass containers.

Recipes

Limburger goes well with Belgian style ales and icy cold bock, stout, pale ale, porter, brown ale, lager or a Belgian ale beer. If wine sounds better, then go with personality — cabernet sauvignon, merlot, red zinfandel, beaujolais or grüner veltliner.

The best way to enjoy this cheese is the traditional way sandwiched between dark rye with thickly sliced raw onion and pub mustard.

Many also love using Limburger as an addition to bread recipes, cut up and mixed lightly into bread dough before baking. The result is simply amazing and you will find the strong aroma is highly reduced, leaving you with bread that has a rich and creamy texture. Try adding a little to your next batch of sourdough, rye, or beer bread.

Also you might like to try IT on your next pizza…we recommend tossing small bits onto a crisp crust with sweet and slow cooked caramelized onions, along with your other favorite pizza toppings.

For the record, Limburger never met a plate of boiled, buttery potatoes it didn’t like.
