No matter if you’re a cheese connoisseur or simply love the basics, there are a few best practices you can keep in mind to keep your cheese safe and fresh. One way to minimize waste begins even before you purchase cheese: Plan how much you need before you buy it. 

How To Store Cheese

  • Store cheese by wrapping it tightly in clinging plastic wrap to keep all air and moisture away from the surface. 
  • Aromatic cheeses, such as Limburger, should be stored in tightly sealed containers. 
  • If you see mold has formed on your natural, hard, block cheese, don’t worry. It’s not harmful and can be easily removed by cutting off at least an inch around the mold spot.
