A unique addition to your cheeseboard

Reminiscent of the breathtaking fields of herbs and olive groves of Provence, this effortless marinade brings out the full character of Jarlsberg® cheese. At your next casual gathering, serve it with rustic bread and selection of French-style Saucisson.

To make the marinated Jarlsberg® cheese

Make sure the glass jar is clean and has a tight lid. Cube the Jarlsberg® cheese and thinly slice the olive and leeks. Finely chop the oregano (or tarragon), peppercorns, and finely mince the thyme and garlic. Whisk vinegar with oil, herbs, peppercorns and garlic. Layer the Jarlsberg® cheese, olives and leeks inside the jar. Cover with marinade and seal tightly. Place the jar in the fridge to marinate for a day; best to use within 3 days at the most.
