Bondost, or "farmer cheese", is made from pasteurised or unpasteurised cows’ milk in Sweden. It is also known as Bond-ost.
The cheese is cylindrical in shape, about 13 cm in diameter and 9 cm high. It is curdled, heated, cut, salted, stirred, pressed into shape, and immersed into brine for a day or two. It is matured for six to eight weeks and can spiced with cumin or caraway seeds. However, some varieties are matured for just 1 to 2 days,
The cheese has a firm texture and a mild flavour, which strengthens as it matures,
