    Default Substitute for limburger cheese?

    Since Kraft quit producing limburger (Mohawk Valley) I can't find limburger
    anywhere here in my small town (100K). I miss it. Can anyone suggest a
    possibly more available cheese that tastes at least somewhat like
    limburger?

    TIA

    Gorgonzola?

    These are the only limburger producers in the US. You might start
    by emailing them to find out where they sell limburger near you,
    or what the shipping process is...

    That's too bad. I think Mohawk Valley was the brand
    I was buying. But I didn't buy it too often. I didn't
    mind the stink, but I couldn't get anyone else to eat it.

    I never bought many, because it was a fatty cheese.
    I tend to stay away from those, preferring harder
    more flavorful cheeses. But I bought more Limburger
    than Brie or Camembert.

    Munster, perhaps? (not muenster, which is totally different) Or how
    about Stilton?

    If you could find a well-made ripe Port Salut, that might do but 99.999% of
    the Port Salut in this country isn't even close to what it should be. Most
    of it has no aroma whatsoever. It's been velveeta-ized.

    You could look for Liederkranz: "Strangely enough, in the 1880's, a New Yorker
    named Emil Frey copied the recipe for Limburger and created Liederkranz..."

    You can order real Limburger here:

    http://www.igourmet.com/shoppe/prodview.aspx?prod=498

    Or you can buy any full-bodied softer cheese, such as Livarot, Epoisses, Pont
    l'Eveque, Reblochon, etc., let it ripen fully, and you'll end up with more
    flavor than Limburger has with the rind removed.
