FAQs about Jarlsberg

You'll often hear Jarlsberg referred to as a type of Swiss cheese or baby Swiss cheese. Although similar, Jarlsberg is not the same as Swiss cheese.

Jarlsberg cheese originated in Norway as a direct descendent of Swiss Emmenthaler, which is the classic Swiss cheese with big holes you likely imagine when you hear the phrase Swiss cheese. Emmenthaler cheese came to Scandinavia around 1830. Norwegians in Jarlsberg county soon adapted the recipe to produce a similar nutty, waxy cheese with large holes.

Modern Jarlsberg cheese was developed at the Dairy Institute at the Agricultural University of Norway during the late 1950s. Jarlsberg, as we know it now, is a mix between Emmenthal and Norwegian Gouda cheeses.

Even though they're not the same, you can certainly substitute Jarlsberg if you have a recipe that calls for Swiss cheese. Jarlsberg is an ideal cheese for cooking.
