Keep Your Cheese Fresher Longer!

Another way to save money is to keep foods fresher longer!  Were you aware that if you stored opened cheese in aluminum foil in your fridge it will stay fresher longer? I have always placed mine in a baggy and sooner or later the green stuff starts to grow!

Cheese is also best stored in the refrigerator as close to the bottom  as possible, where it can stay coolest.  Vegetable compartments are ideal. Wrap it in aluminum foil or waxed paper (waxed paper being the best of the two). The cheese will be able to breathe and further develop without drying out. 
The harder the cheese, the longer it will stay fresh and Semi-soft cheeses will usually be fine for several weeks. Freezing cheese is not recommended!

Bon Apetit!

Ta ta for money!
