Leyden cheese

Leyden cheese, known as komijnekaas (cumin cheese) or Leidsekaas in Dutch, is a spiced cheese made in the Netherlands from partly skimmed cows' milk. It is made both in factories and on farms, historically in the Leiden area.

The factory cheese is round and flat like Gouda, but sometimes it is made with sharp edges on one side. It is imported into the United States in different sizes, some cheeses weighing about 8 pounds (3.6 kg) and others as much as 16 to 20 pounds (7 to 9 kg).
