Cheese Colby
Colby Cheese, a close relative of Cheddar, is a mild golden cheese with a firm open texture and tiny holes. The cheese was developed in Colby, Wisconsin in 1885 by Joseph Steinwand. Colby is softer and milder than Cheddar because it is produced with a "washed-curd process" where cooked curd is rinsed with water. This results in a lower acid cheese, with a softer texture and higher moisture content.
