How is Comté made?

The Comté is made with raw cow’s milk, The milk is poured into copper tank where is it heated up to 40degrees C max. Then some Levain or leaven is added which will act as acidifying agent, those will help developing the taste of the cheese. After few minutes of maturation, some presure or rennet which will activate the coagulation of the milk. When the milk curd reach the right consistency the cheese maker proceeds to cut it to get pieces of small sizes. The curd is then heated to a temp min 53 for at least 30mins. This is to remove le petit lait or small milk (the liquid residual that appears during coagulation).
The cheese is extracted and put into mould, salted and to be then pressed for at least 6 hours.
L’affinage or the ripening is done on a board of epicea tree for at least 120 days. Most of the Comté are 6, 12, up to 24 months and more.
