Teach me how to make Cancoillotte
cheese from things I can buy in an American supermarket or (unlikely) where to buy it for shipment to the USA (Nebraska).

Back in college, I studied for a semester in Besançon, Franche-Comté, France. Among my fond food memories are a couple of cheeses: Comté, which is readily available in a couple of local stores, and Cancoillotte which is not.
Google has explained to me that milk is made into metton and that metton is made into Cancoillotte by melting with butter and liquid such as white wine or water, but I'm quite unclear about how metton is made and I never saw or handled any while in France to know what it is. (In English, wikipedia calls metton 'runny' but cites a French description which says it has a 'pâte dure' which sounds anything but… it is Cancoillotte which is runny)
You may assume I do OK in the kitchen (including very limited experience helping make yogurt once or twice), but please do not assume I can read a recipe in French to save my life.
