How Edam Cheese is crafted

Mainland Edam Cheese is created using a traditional Dutch washed curd method where 25 to 30 percent of the whey is removed from the vat and replaced with warm water. Farm fresh milk is pasteurised and pre-ripened with selected starter cultures. This process gives Edam its sweet taste.
