Comté is by far the most widely produced and consumed cheese in France. The combination of sweetness and saltiness gives this cheese an intriguing flavor which resembles that of Gruyere - in fact, it is also commonly referred to as Gruyere de Comte. Produced in the mountains of Jura, Comte has an interior consistency that is even, smooth and elastic, buttery and delicate. A very balanced flavor with salty notes and nutty tangs characterizes this cheese, and is typically eaten with fruit, in a sandwich or a salad. The best: on a traditional croque-monsieur.
