tybo

Pronunciation: [TI-boh]

Similar to a mild-flavored samsoe, this Danish, loaf-shaped cheese is made from cows' milk. Its yellow rind encloses a cream-colored interior dotted with holes. Its mild taste makes it good for sandwiches, salads, sauces and a variety of cooked dishes. Some tybos are flavored with caraway seeds.
