ATHEESE-MAKING is not a new
U industry in the United States,
the first factory having been
started in New York State in 1851,
but a realization of its importance
has but recently struck the average
American. Part of this sudden com
prehension comes from reading pro
duction figures some 406,686,000
pounds having been manufactured
in this country In 1927. Another
cause is increased knowledge of the
wide variety of cheeses produced in
Limburger cheese, beloved of all
cartoonists, 2s now made here in
luch a way that its characteristic
texture and flavor is attained, but
most of its odor is deleted. Roque
fort cheese, which has been made
only in a gmall district in southern
France for over 800 years is now
being- made in this country r and
through thf absolatj control of
moisture and temperature in the air
and by special processing devlcea.
the resultant cheese is so good thai
even a connoisseur cannot give it
origin. Swiss, cheese is another
which can be produced here; and
mere are others.
Quite aside from its delicious
nawr, - consumers like . American "
cheese because of the sanitary meth
ods of manufacture which prevail
m modern factories and because of
the method of packaging. , Tinfoil ;
wrappers are the most common wat
of protecting small cheeses, but
cheese of many varieties is also put '
up in hermetically sealed tin can.
Canned cheese can be kept in house
hold storage Indefinitely and will
always be at hand for the house
