Geitost refers to Norway's national cheese . Geitost means goat cheese, as it is originaly made entirely from goats milk, however, nowadays Geitost is often made with a blend of goat's and cow's milk. It is described as mild smoked cheese which bears a remarkable similarity to smooth peanut butter in color, texture and taste. Geitost is a farmhouse and creamy, semi-hard cheese. There is a classification based on different propotions of cow and goat cheese in Geitost. This cheese has a sweetish, caramel-like taste and is dark brown in color. Geitost is made with no ripening period which results in the sweet, fishy, caramel flavor. It is a non-perishable dessert cheese that must be sliced paper-thin and placed on Norwegian flat bread. For breakfast, Norwegian children eat Geitost where it is made from the liquid whey instead of the curd. Geitost is also sometimes spelled as Gjetost and is pronounced "yay-toast". )
