Christmas Countdown: "Queso de Bola"

With seven days remaining before Christmas, another food item that reminds me of the season is the queso de bola or cheese ball. Queso de bola is  believed to bring prosperity to those who eat it during the Noche Buena (Christmas Eve dinner).

Queso de bola is typically made of Edam cheese formed into a sphere and wrapped in red paraffin wax. Aside from served with ham and pan de sal bread, queso de bola may also be enjoyed with wine.
