You should not keep at home a large stockpile of cheese, it is better to purchase it as needed in the amount that you will have time to eat for a few days. In extreme cases, you can save quite a long time in the freezer. To do this, place a piece of cheese in a plastic bag and put it on the freeze date. After thawing, this product will not lose its flavor, but will crumble. Therefore it is better to subject it to heat treatment, adding to soup or pizza.
Small pieces of cheese for long term storage, wrap in parchment paper or foil, place in a clean plastic bag and put in a special sarnitsa. If sarnici no, you can use any glass or plastic container with a lid. However, to close the lid tightly is not necessary, cheese is a live product and needs to "breathe". Then place the glassware on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator. Cheese very rapidly absorbs foreign flavors, so do not keep near him foods with a pungent, characteristic odor.
If you want to keep cheese without refrigeration, you can wrap it in saline-soaked cloth (it is better to take linen or dense cotton towel) and put in a dark, cool place. You need to be very careful and ensure that no mold appeared.
Brine cheese (Suluguni cheese, feta) can be stored for 2-3 months when you purchase them together with the brine. Place the cheese pieces in a glass or ceramic container, pour brine and cover. It is recommended to store the cheese at a temperature of 6-8 degrees and a relative humidity of over 80 %. Before use, the brine cheeses you can briefly soak in milk at room temperature. This will help to rid the product of excess salt and to greatly improve its taste.
