Kashkaval is a rennet cheese made from sheep's or cow's milk. It is soaked in hot brine, and as it matures its rind darkens and its flavor becomes sharply bitter, reminiscent in places of the taste of caramelized onions. The name kashkaval (caciocavallo in Italy), comes from the Latin caseus (cheese) and caballus (horse). Traditionally, the cheese is dried by attaching two pumpkin-shaped caciocavallo balls to a rope and hanging them from a wooden pole as if they were placed on the back of a horse. 4)


Limburger cheese is named after Limburg, Belgium, where it first appeared in markets. Bacteria that live in human skin and cause foot odor are used in its production.
