Lacy Swiss Cheese

Typical of many Swiss cheeses characterized by the holes ("eyes") found throughout the cheese, Lacy Swiss cheese also contains holes, but they are much smaller in size than the aged Swiss cheese. Lacy Swiss, a semi-soft cheese, is similar to another variety referred to as Baby Swiss, both having smaller holes due to a shorter curing time. As the cheese ages, the holes increase in size, thus Baby and Lacy Swiss both are younger milder cheeses that have had the curing process altered so the acidity, temperature and length of the curing is adjusted to make these younger varieties of cheese.
