Storage Tips

  • Buy in the quantities you need for the next week or two. If you must store for a longer time, hard cheeses like Cheddar can be frozen.
  • Leave Cheddar in its original packaging and tightly cover with plastic wrap. This reduces air circulation, which in turn reduces the possibility of mold.
  • Store Cheddar in the coldest part of your refrigerator – not on the door.
  • When using frozen Cheddar, let it thaw out in the refrigerator for 24 hours before use. Rapid thawing causes a breakdown between the moisture and oils in the cheese.
