Milk: Cows Milk
This is a pressed, semi-hard to hard cheese made from cows milk. It comes in a shape of ball covered with distinctive red wax. Edam is produced from skimmed or semi-skimmed milk. It is usually consumed young, when the texture is elastic and supple and the flavor is smooth, sweet, and nutty. Black-wax coating means that Edam has been matured for at least 17 weeks.
