EDAM CHEESE — A student checks balls of MSU Edam cheese in a 48-hour salt bath in the Salt Room at the Edward W. Custer Dairy Processing Plant. After the bath, the cheese balls are dried off, waxed and aged for a minimum of three months. A unit of the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, the plant is a teaching and research laboratory for students studying dairy foods at MSU. Products from the plant can be purchased here.
