Sap Sago is a pale green gourmet cheese from the canton of Glarus in Switzerland and is something of an acquired taste. It is made from skim milk and flavored with fenugreek, a wild clover which grows in the locality and gives the cheese its unique flavor. Many seek it out as a low-fat substitute for Parmigiano and Pecorino Romano.
The gourmet cheese is extremely hard and is made for grating. Sap Sago has many names; Sapsago, Schabziger and may even simply be referred to as 'green cheese'. It is pressed into small truncated cones of 3.2 ounces and we sell them in pairs.
