Tips to Store Cheese – Keep the Taste Intact

Cheese is a commodity that’s used widely for both commercial and domestic purposes. That’s the reason why you need to store it in optimum conditions so that it does not get spoilt in any way. Mentioned below are a few tips on how to store cheese to keep it fresh and make it last longer.

Any kind of cheese, be it hard, semi-soft or semi-hard, you need to
store it within a temperature of 46 degree Celsius to 55 degree Celsius.

Solid cheese should ideally be stored at room temperature as refrigerating it may lead to condensation that will make the cheese sticky.

Do not keep the cheese in the freezer as it could lead to changes in its exterior and flavor. However, you can keep grated cheese in the freezer and use it directly for cooking.

Wrap the cheese using an aluminum foil, or waxed paper to allow proper air ventilation. For long term storage of solid and semi-solid cheese, you need to wrap them in a paper towel topped off with cider vinegar and then place it in a plastic sealed bag. This kind of packaging will prevent the growth of micro-organisms.

It is best to store fresh cheese in its original container and in the coldest area of your fridge.

Avoid storing cheese with strong flavored food items such as garlic, ginger and others as the cheese is likely to absorb the aroma and get spoilt thereafter.

If you have a huge slab of cheese at your disposal, then you can cut it and use only the part that you require. Frequently removing the cheese in and out of the refrigerator is likely to spoil it.

You need to keep the shelf life of the cheese in mind. Soft cheese has a short shelf life while hard cheese can be used on a long term basis.

Keep the above tips in mind before you store cheese this season.
