Liederkranz - LEE-duhr-krahntz
Description: Liederkranz® originated in upstate New York in the late 1800s as a replica of a traditional soft, smelly cheese from Germany that immigrants missed and could no longer get because it would spoil during shipping. The cheese recipe left New York for Ohio in 1926 before finally finding a new home in Wisconsin, which has an enthusiastic German fan base. An American cousin to Germany’s famed Limburger cheese, Liederkranz® cheese has the same texture and unique aroma, but features a distinctively robust and buttery flavor. Its moist, edible, golden yellow crust cradles a pale ivory interior with a honey-like consistency.
