L’Edel de Cléron is a traditional cheese and relatively new, named after the village where it is made, called Cléron in the Jura region of France. This type of cheese was created in response to a milk transportation problem. Dairy farmers who provided large amounts of milk to the Comte or Abondance makers in the spring and summer, were stuck with not being able to transport the milk in the winter months. These types of cheese were thus made by these same farmers for home consumption. They were smaller and fresher cheeses. Because of their youth and fragile nature they are banded with bark to help keep their shape during storage.
