Tilsiter

Also Known As:  Havarti (from Denmark), Tollenser

Tilsiter cheese was first developed in the city of Tilsit, in former East Prussia (today this city is called Sowetsk, Russia), by immigrants from the Netherlands.

Tilsiter cheese is developed in several European countries under various names (for example "Havarti" in Denmark, "Tilsitski" in Russia). German Tilsiter is shaped into a loaf or log. It ranges in taste from lightly sour to tangy. Some German cheese producers also add caraway seeds or coarsely ground pepper to the cheese dough.
