Kernham (lit. knife-sticker) was ‘invented’ in the 20th century by accident. A cheesemaker who produced Roomkaas allowed a batch of cheese to mature at too high a temperature. When he tested them, they stuck to his knife and the cheeses has collapsed into smelly discs. However, the cheesemaker liked the taste of them and started to produce them as a new cheese.
Produced from cows’ milk and cream in Trappist style, Kernhem is very soft and supple with a full, rich, nutty, creamy flavour. It has a soft texture and is disk-shaped with an orange-red washed rind. It resembles Port Salut in some ways.
The cheese is matured for 1 month.
