Glengarry Fine Cheese

Celtic Blue

Celtic Blue is a creamy Blue cheese with delicate blue veining and a limestone-coloured natural rind.

Made by Glengarry Fine Cheese

Glengarry Fine Cheese is situated in South Glengarry Township, Ontario, on a farm located on the ancestral lands of Margaret Peters-Morris. Margaret began making cheese from the farm's milk in the early 1990’s. Her Dutch heritage made Gouda the number one choice, but her family's overall love of cheese propelled Margaret to add more varieties to the repertoire.

Keeping Cheese

Storage

Proper storage includes making sure that the wrapping adheres well to the cheese to prevent it from drying out. Keep cheeses on a lower shelf of your refrigerator, far from foods with strong odours, to avoid absorption of unwanted tastes and smells. If you follow these guidelines, your refrigerator’s vegetable drawer will be a good storage spot.

Plastic wrap is the most versatile, accessible and efficient way to preserve cheese freshness. It also provides the tightest seal to protect from moisture, odours and possibly mould in the fridge.
Refrigerator Shelf-life: 2-3 weeks.

Freezing

Most cheeses can be frozen, but it is important to keep in mind that freezing can affect texture and character. This is why thawed cheeses are best reserved for use in cooking. Neither the taste nor texture of meals cooked with previously frozen cheeses will be affected.
You can freeze Blue cheese, in pieces of 500 g or less, for up to two months! Just carefully wrap cheese in plastic wrap and place in an airtight freezer bag or vacuum pack. Before using, it is important to allow cheese to thaw slowly in the refrigerator.
