Saaland Pfarr

In the 16th and 19th centuries, Prastost was produced by the churches, but nowadays it is a factory-made Swedish cow's milk cheese. This cheese is sometimes referred to as 'Priest Cheese', describing the traditional one-time custom of paying tithes with agricultural goods including milk in Sweden. Today, this cheese is produced across factories in Sweden from pasteurized cow's milk. It has a rich and strong flavour, which ideally goes well with a snack, or a soup.

Sometimes, Prästost is soaked or cured in whiskey or similar spirits to produce a variant called Saaland Pfarr. A variant of Prästost cheese cured in Absolut vodka for more than a year produces an amazing, award-winning VODCheese.
