Today, most cheesemakers who make a cheese called Colby simply slap that label on a young cheddar. Widmer's is one of the few remaining companies to make authentic Colby. Cheesemakers first produced Colby, a close relative of Cheddar, in the central Wisconsin town of Colby in 1885. Similar in flavor to Cheddar, Colby is softer and has a more open texture and higher moisture content. Cheesemakers spray the curds with cold water and stir them while they are still in the vat to prevent the curds from knitting together. This procedure gives Colby a more elastic texture than Cheddar.
