Edam - 2 lb
A cheese that defines Dutch culture, Edam is a mellow, savory, slightly salty cheese that has a pale yellow interior with a red or yellow paraffin coating. (The yellow is more common in Holland; the red is intended for export). It is made from part-skimmed milk (30 to 40 percent milk-fat) and comes in spheres with flattened ends. Edam, named for a Dutch town, is second only to Gouda as Holland's most exported cheese. It is a great all-purpose cheese, especially good when served with dark beer. Our red-waxed two pound Edam is over-wrapped in gorgeous red cellophane, making it the perfect cheese gift.
Due to recent factory issues in Holland, this cheese is made to Dutch specification in Austria. Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
