Cracked Open My Edam Tonight
« on: June 07, 2009, 07:24:47 PM »
I cracked open an Edam I made back in January. First cheese I ever waxed too. Not sure I like the extra moistness of the waxed cheese. I like my cheese a bit drier.

very nice looking cheese. The texture looks perfect in the photo. I agree with you about the moisture in the waxed cheeses. I have the same issues with mine.

Yeah it was good but I guess I am used to drier cheeses the moistness and rubbery feel kind of left me wanting a old hunk of provalone.

I'm not sure how i managed to miss this thread,  but congrats, this is a good looking cheese. 

It seems to have a closed curd and the extra moisture?, i wonder if over time that will go away.

Thanks all. Wayne I threw it back in the cave without wax. I am thinking the extra moistness was from being waxed? I am a real newbie to wax and I am not liking it so far. Changes everything.  ???
