Beemster Classic Extra Aged Gouda is one of the rarest, most sought after Dutch specially-cured cheeses. This cheese, which has been made in the southern provinces of the Netherlands for more than 800 years, is the dairy world's equivalent of a Rembrandt or Van Gogh. A pasteurized cow's milk cheese, it is made by the CONO Kaasmakers under the Beemster banner, a sustainable dairy co-operative located in the Beemster Polder. The Beemster Polder is the home of pesticide-free grass that derives much of its special qualities from the mineral-rich blue sea clay. Matured for a minimum of eighteeen months, this cheese is caramel in colour, and has a butterscotch nuttiness and a sweet finish. Beemster Classic Extra Aged Gouda can be grated or cubed. It is excellent served on crackers or bread as an appetizer, but is also delicious as the main cheese in au gratin patatoes.
