I’ve found gjetost in multiple good grocery stores and cheese shops in the SF Bay Area. I find it to be not-great cold or at room temperature – when it’s too solid it has kind of a waxy texture – but delicious once it’s even a bit above room temp. I’d recommend making toast in a toaster oven, then sticking slices on the toast and shoving it back in the toaster for a few minutes to let the residual heat warm it. It’s also delicious as part of the filling for a stuffed winter squash (like acorn squash).


Love this stuff!!
I’ve been known to spread slices with apple butter.
I get it at Jungle Jim’s in Fairfield, OH, the best 6.5 acre grocery store in the USA.
