danbo

Pronunciation: [DAN-boh]

This popular Danish semihard cheese is made from pasteurized cow's-milk cheese. It has a yellow rind that may or may not be covered with wax or plastic. The smooth, supple interior has a scattering of eyes and a mild, buttery flavor. Some Danbo is flavored with caraway seed. Regular Danbo has about 45 percent milk fat; the lowfat variety contains only 20 percent fat. See also cheese.
