Julost can look in many different ways. Edamerosten with its red shell, ädelosten on gingerbread, and the classic cheddarosten on christmas. But there is so much more we can do with the cheese for christmas. Loved the ost's wine - and ostexpert Frida Ewertsson give their best tips.
According to the Frida Ewertsson, wine and ostexpert on the Beloved cheese, there are really only two cheeses that are a must for christmas – the blue cheese and cheddar. Blue cheese to pepparkakan is a real classic, But do you want to impress guests, you should take it a step further.
– instead of the classic combination of blue cheese and gingerbread, maybe you can dare to make a cheesecake flavored with blue cheese and with pepparkaksbotten instead of digestivekex, " she says. Or why not make a ädelostkräm as you shape like balls and then rolls in the pepparkakssmulor or chopped cranberries. Fantastically good, " says Frida Ewertsson.
Blåmögelosten suitable not only to gingerbread, it's also really good to use in cooking.
– blue-veined cheese, such as Castello Blue or Swedish kvibille Ädel, is also a cheese that does well in several dishes, " says Frida Ewertsson. Now at christmas, it is a good one with a warm and filling salad with, for example, fried brussels sprouts, walnuts, cranberries and blue cheese. Or maybe a pizza with blue cheese and collard greens. Do it like in miniature and serve as an appetizer.
Frida Ewertsson think julklassikern cheddar is just as good at frukostmackan as on the cheese board, depending on which variety you choose.
– Personally, I prefer a good stored cheddar, Falbygdens cheddar or Swedish kvibille cheddar 18 months, in a coarse whole grain bread or melted on a hot sandwich served with a cup of steaming hot chocolate out of a vinterkall forest. But cheddar is at least as good to serve in cubes in a delicious salad with dates and apples, or marinated and served on christmas.
To the cute "glögg" fits blåmögelosten perfect. Fruity and sweeter beer matches as well the saltiness of the cheese nicely. Do you prefer the company so select a stored with a little more adult taste. Wine and cheese is a classic.
– to Choose a white druvigt and aromatic wine with some sweetness, such as a pinot gris. It fits generally well to most cheeses. Or why not a fruity chardonnay with hints of barrel?
Among the non-alcoholic fits apple juice, non-alcoholic beer as a light IPA to cheddar and an ale in the belgian style to hårdosten.
do you Want to eat according to the season so you should take the opportunity to try the ”bergsostarna”. Now during the winter it can be good to avoid the cheeses that have a short shelf life because the animals are not out grazing now, but are fed with hay which does not give the same aromas and flavors. Comté and Gruyère, have been stored in a half to one and a half years. Look also for other ”bergostar” as the Appenzeller and Raclette.
