While not all cheese rinds can be eaten (a general good practice is to avoid rinds made of not-so-edible things like wax, cloth, or foil), many add a little something extra to the cheese’s flavor and the eating experience. This article from Yahoo Food lists several cheeses with delectable rinds. If you’ve been avoiding cheese rinds until now, pick one of these up and give it a go!
The rind: like the delicious cheese you love, only more so. There are bloomy rinds, washed rinds, blue cheese rinds, and ash rinds out there, all waiting for some affection.
