Washing the Goudas
Over the last few weeks, I have been washing the Goudas with a light salt solution. I decided not to wax them but let the cheeses develop a natural rind. It occurred to me that traditionally these cheeses were never waxed or plasticified. I wonder when this started. My grandmother washed and turned them daily until the rind had developed into a natural protection.
