Comté is a traditional, hard cheese with similar characteristics as Switzerland Gruyère. Produced from the milk of cows that have been fed from the rich pastures of the Jura mountains, no additives are mixed with the milk. Comté is very creamy and has a piquant, yet sweet flavor. The quality can be judged by the size and shape and condition of holes ('eyes'). They vary from the size of pea to that of a cherry. The Comté requires a long maturing period. During this period of affinage its rind becomes a golden yellow to brown and hardens.
