This Norwegian holiday cheese is flavored with herbal additions sure to give Nokkelost a warm, spicy taste. Nokkelfest is a festive choice that works well when served with beer, wine, and dark breads such as pumpernickel.
Once our cheese has been milk cream coated and naturally aged it lasts for 2-3 months on the shelf prior to opening. After opening just refrigerate and enjoy! Because our cheese is crafted and cut by hand, weight is approximate. Don’t worry though; we err on the heavier side. Because let’s be honest – more cheese is always better.
Ingredients: Cultured Raw Milk, Salt, Enzymes, Cloves, Caraway, Cumin, Cardamon. Contains Milk.

It’s hard to describe this cheese, other than IT’S THE BEST CHEESE, EVER. Rich, flavorful, with all the right texture and all the right flavors of cumin and spices. The first time I tried it (at our little Farmer’s Market in town, some years ago) I practically rolled my eyes in delight when I tried a sample. Since then, I’m a huge fan of THIS particular brand, by this particular cheese maker. I send Jake’s Nokkelost to friends and family on the holidays (and of course, order some for myself!). It comes neatly wrapped in insulated packaging. Try this. This will become your all-time favorite cheese!
