Muenster (cheese)

Muenster is an American cheese, not to be confused with the French variety, Munster.  The name Muenster is derived from an English transliteration of Munster, a city in Germany.

The original name of the French cheese comes from Alsatian abbey of Munster in the Vosgian mountains.  Munster translates as "monastery", altered from Latin monasterium.
Its taste is comparable to that of both typical white American cheese and a sharp jack cheese.

Muenster is a smooth textured cheese with an orange rind and a white interior. This washed-rind cheese is made from cows� milk. The orange color is derived from vegetable coloring.  It usually has a very mild flavor and smooth, soft texture. In some cases, when properly aged, it can develop a strong flavor with a pungent aroma.

This cheese is commonly served as an appetizer.  Because it melts well, it is also often used in dishes such as grilled cheese sandwiches, tuna melts, quesadillas and cheeseburgers.

American versions are sold younger, and with a weaker taste, than European versions.
