Have you been storing your cheese wrong?
New advice from experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI) has people rethinking their storage.
Apparently wrapping it in plastic traps moisture, “encourage mould to grow on the surface of the cheese.”
Instead, they advise wrapping your cheese in waxed paper.
For blue cheese lovers, the Institute says: “Loosely wrap blue cheeses, which can become more liquid as they mature, in a layer of tin foil over the waxed paper to stop them leaking in the fridge.”
Where you place cheese in the fridge also matters.
“Cheese likes a slightly humid environment. For this reason, the salad drawer is actually the best place in the fridge to store it, as it retains just enough moisture.”
To help your cheese taste at its finest, remove it from the fridge approximately one hour before serving at room temperature.
