Like Swiss cheese, Havarti contains small ‘eyes’ or holes and is usually matured for just three months.
It is a creamy cheese with a taste that varies depending on how long it has been aged but generally should be buttery, sweet and slightly acidic.
Cream Havarti is a variation made by adding extra cream.
