Off course you are able to store cheese in your refrigerator however you will have the risk that the cheese will be too cold, too hard or even too dry!
If you place you cheese outside the “kitchen refrigerator” the cheese will not have the perfect temperature and you are not able to ignore the smell!
Some information about temperatures for cheese:
- Brinned cheeses (Beaufort, Gruyère, Feta) between 8 – 10° C
- Soft-ripened cheeses (Brie, Camembert, Humboldt fog) between at 8° C
- Pont l”Evêque cheese between 8 – 12° C
- Blue cheeses (Roquefort, Danish Bleu) between 11 – 13° C
The beste temperature for all cheeses is between 9 – 13° C
You can also prevent mold at home by cutting cheese on all sides. Holds the cheese on the crust. Never touch the cheese dairy, because it is precisely in these places that the mold begins to mold very quickly. Finally, never store cheese for more than three weeks, so you will always have fresh cheese at home.
Also store cheese in a cheese bag or cheese box. This way you prevent it from coming into contact with moisture. Then store it in the cellar (where the temperature and humidity are the most constant). Vacuum-packed cheese has a longer shelf life and stays fresh longer because it does not come into contact with air.
Additional information: you can also put other products in it, such as butter – so that the butter does not harden).
