Sap Sago Cheese is a 100% natural cheese with a deliciously distinctive flavor. The hard, low-fat, pungent grating cheese has a history that dates back to 1463 from the mountains of Canton Glarus in Switzerland. Also known as Swiss Schabziger®, this unique cheese is still manufactured with the same recipe from a thousand years ago. It uses skimmed cow's milk mixed with aromatic blue fenugreek, which makes it so healthy and gives it its characteristic aroma and attractive green herb color.
Swiss Schabziger® comes packaged in a 3-ounce cone. Its uses are endless -- grate it over boiled or baked potatoes, noodles, pasta, pizza, soups and salads and even over apple and cherry pies. The Swiss often mix Sap Sago in equal parts with butter for a very tasty spread for fresh breads.
This almost fat-free cheese is for the more adventuresome. It keeps almost indefinitely at room temperature (however, we keep it under refrigeration) and you'll find that a little goes a long way. Imported from Switzerland.
To easily grate Sap Sago, take a look at our Zyliss Classic Restaurant Rotary Cheese Grater.

This is exactly what I was looking for. So hard to find in the US.
Love this tangy cheese!
I was introduced to this cheese decades ago and love it! It has a strong flavor, which does wonders to perk up pizza, spaghetti, even buttered toast. I always immediately grate it finely and pop it in the freezer to keep the flavor fresh. I'll be back here again next year for more.
So thrilled to find this cheese that I grew up with and have loved for 50ish years. Even bought some for my dad, who's super excited to have it too.
Just like in Switzerland, great quality and as delicious as I remember. Mix it into Polenta, Risotto, with cream sauce over pasta or potatoes - the possibilities are endless. I'm so happy that I can order it here and at a reasonable price. Holds forever too!
Pleased Homestead Market sells this product. Fresh, timely delivery always enjoy
