Keeping Cheese

Storage

Velvet Blue and bloomy rind Soft cheeses are at their best when they emit an aroma of mushrooms and the rind gives when pressed slightly under your finger. A very strong smell or an ammonia-like odour is a sign that the cheese is overripe.

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.

To preserve cheese freshness, use the original wrapping or rewrap in plastic wrap to provide the tightest seal to protect from moisture, odours and possibly mould in the fridge.

Refrigerator Shelf-life: 1 week.

Freezing

Freezing is not recommended for Soft cheeses.
