I agree. I buy it at least once a month at Costco...

Maybe you have to buy a goat! ..But with a nanny goat..you will have need of a billy every year or so... but you can keep him far out back...in the jing weeds..

Jing weeds !! Maybe that's just what you need for spice...

There is a weed out here that stinks like a cheeseburger. But even the cattle won't eat it. I don't know if a
goat would heck they eat just about everything else.

Cows goats and sheep on Iceland date back to the Vikings. Few if any breeds have been introduced in centuries so their cheeses may be hard to replicate.
Try using a goat brie

That and when grazing they have a competly differant diet than ours here do. They like that fuzzy looking
moss that grows on the volcanic rocks. You really don't get much grassland until you move farther into the interior. I was stationed on the S.West coast near Keflavik, it was all rock and moss.

It looks like short grass but it isn't.

Arctic mountain goats? .But seriously, does that cheese taste like Swiss cheese? Is it reasonably hard like Swiss.

Some are hard, some soft, I think of goat cheese as a soft cheese, maybe it doesn't have to be, parmesean is a hard cheese, ground for use of course.
The goat cheese I am thinking of is like a neufchatel or a cream cheese.

Seems like most of the soft cheeses have mild flavor...although what flavor brie has, I don't care for..

It taste like Swiss, but it's hard for me to remember. It comes from the inland dairies. Iceland is a very
beautiful place inland guys. It's become a very popular tourist destination now.

I have a niece, who many years ago served with the Navy there, She was an air traffic controller.

Four years was enough..she left the Navy and became a civilian ATC..she may be approaching retirement soon.
