Looks very nice Mike. I just came across this thread as I am planning on making a Gouda with cumin in the next couple of days. Thanks everyone for the great information shared here.

 Question , What is the main difference between Leiden and Gouda?

Thanks

John

I think Leiden is the town the cheese was originally made in and it is simply a gouda with cumin seeds added.
That's my understanding, but I will defer to the guy who lives next door to both cities...Herman.  ;)

Let's ferment something!
Bread, beer, wine, cheese...it's all good.

That does look great , Gouda seems to be a cheese that goes well with other flavors added to it.

Where we used to live there was a couple who had a small artisan cheese company , we used to buy 2 year old Gouda with dill , or garlic , they were both very good.

I have a Gouda of my own with Dill , aging right now , hoping to leave it for a year , and start another one in the meantime , possibly with Garlic this time.

A cheese to you !

Cheers , Jim.

My wife has taken to calling me "the cheesehead" so I guess I need to start rooting for the Greenbay Packers LOL.

Hey , even us Cheeseheads don't root for the Packers ! ;D
