The Best Swiss Cheese

My turkey sandwiches got infinitely more tasty about two months ago when I discovered Nelson Cheese and Deli on Como and just off Snelling Avenue in St. Paul.

They sell aged swiss cheese that absolutely makes the sandwich. When you cut open the wrapper, the cheese is often swimming in water and when you cut it, water seeps from the holes onto the cutting board. It is much more pungent than the ordinary swiss cheese you’ll find in the grocery store. As you cut slices off, it will flake off on your knife like slate will when chipped with a hammer. The taste is much sharper and just far more interesting than your garden variety swiss cheese. I have bought no other type of swiss cheese since I found the stuff.
