Friesian Clove (Nagelkaas)
Clove cheese is a unique Dutch specialty, though seldom available outside of Holland. The Friesian people of northeastern Holland developed this cheese using cloves and cumin as flavorful additions. Since cloves resemble nails, the cheese is locally known as "Nail cheese" or in Dutch, "Nagelkaas." Nagelkaas has a pronounced spicy taste, thus a little bit goes a long way. Made from skim milk, this cheese is only 23% butterfat, giving it a firm texture. But that is not to say it is low in flavor - to the contrary, it is very flavorful thanks to the added spices!
  • Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
  • Whole form of cheese is 17 lbs.
