About Mozzarella

Mozzarella is a rindless, Semi-soft pasta filata cheese. The name comes from the Italian verb "mozzare", which means "to cut". It has smooth texture and the mild, delicate taste of milk, underscored with a hint of sweet nuttiness. Perfect on pizza, pasta or au gratin dishes, it can also be a snack or salad component.

Keeping Cheese

Storage

Mozzarella cheese should keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.

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.

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 Mozzarella, like most Semi-soft cheeses, 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. Before using, it is important to allow cheese to thaw slowly in the refrigerator.
