Lüneberg is a cows’ milk cheese made in mountain valleys in Vorarlberg in western Austria. Cheese-making was introduced into this region from Switzerland; copper kettles and Swiss-type presses are used to make Lüneberg.
The milk for the cheese is coloured with saffron and warmed to around 90°F; enough rennet is added to coagulate in 20 to 30 minutes. The curd is cut into pieces the size of hazelnuts and is heated. It is then placed into cloths which are pressed lightly in wooden moulds. After 24 hours in the press, during which time the cheeses are turned and the cloths are occasionally changed, they are taken to a curing cellar. They are salted on the surface, and rubbed and washed occasionally while curing.
