The best way to preserve the rich flavours and distinct textures of your favourite cheeses is through proper storage. Use this guide to keep cheeses lasting longer and tasting better.

Storing in the fridge

If you want to keep your cheddar cheese at its best, store it in the coldest part of your refrigerator as opposed to the door.

Wrapping your cheese

After you’ve opened your cheddar cheese, leave it in its original packaging and tightly cover with plastic wrap. Doing this reduces air circulation, which in turn reduces the possibility of mold.

Freezing your cheese

If you’re buying hard cheeses like cheddar that you know you won’t use for a few weeks, they can be frozen. When using frozen cheddar cheese, 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.
