Clove cheese is a unique Dutch specialty, though rarely available outside of Holland. The Friesian people of northeastern Holland developed this cheese using cloves and cumin as flavorful additions. Since cloves correspond to nails, the cheese is locally known as “Nail cheese” or in Dutch, “Nagelkaas.” Nagelkaas has a pronounced spicy taste, thus a little bit goes a long way. Made from skim milk, giving it a firm texture. But that is not to say it is low in flavor – to the contrary, it is very flavorful thanks to the added spices!
The skimmed milk, clove and cummin seed give the cheese a unique character which can be used for many occasions. Try combining with a full-bodied red wine or a spicy or beer.
The cheese is freshly cut with a knife and vacuum packed, so we can always assure the quality. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact our customer service.
