Fynbo is a Danish cheese named after the island of Fyn. This off white coloured cheese with the taste reminiscent of buckwheat grain is still produced in small quantities on the island of Fynbo in Denmark. Pasteurised cow's milk and animal rennet goes into making this cheese, which is then shaped into a 4-pound cylinder and aged for several months. It has a smooth, cream colour pate and a natural golden exterior.
A semi-hard cheese, Fynbo is very similar in flavour to Gouda and Monterey Jack cheese. Any recipe that requires the use of Monterey Jack could be replaced with Fynbo. However, Fynbo is very difficult to find outside Denmark such as the United States.
Though it is exported, the cheese can be tracked mostly to gourmet cheese shops.
Since, Danish cheeses such as Fynbo are mild and creamy in flavour; they are commonly eaten with salads, as slices with sandwiches and added in cooking.
