Cheese Bags

I only recommend products that have used myself and love. Some of the links allow me to earn a referral commission, at no additional cost to you.

When you buy cheese wrapped in plastic wrap, remove the plastic wrapping before you store it in your refrigerator. The plastic does not allow the cheese to breathe, which will cause it to mold prematurely. To increase the longevity and freshness of cheese, it needs to be stored appropriately so that it can breathe and is protected from drying out.

In France, we store cheese in the basement in a wooden box with a screen that allows the right amount of airflow and humidity. This method of storage keeps the cheese fresh for months.

Unfortunately, the humidity and temperature of my basement in the states won't allow me to store cheese in the same manner. To solve the problem, I searched for a solution and found these cheese bags. They allow the cheese to breathe without drying out and will keep your precious cheese fresh for weeks, depending on the cheese, even months.

French Cheese Bags

These cheese bags by Formaticum are made in France and will not only keep your cheese fresh, but they will also save you money from having to toss out cheese that has gone bad. You can also keep a wider variety of cheese on hand since you won't be concerned with using it up so quickly.

How to Store Cheese

To use these cheese bags, remove the plastic wrapping from your cheese and place it in a Formaticum cheese bag. Label the outside of the bag with the name of the cheese, and place it in your refrigerator. You can store hard cheese, blue cheese, and goat cheese, but not cheese that needs to be stored in water, such as mozzarella or feta, in a cheese bag.

You can reuse the cheese bags several times if you store the same type of cheese. For example, I always have a block of fresh Parmesan cheese on hand, and when I run out of Parmesan, I put a new block in the same bag. Keep the empty bags in the refrigerator until you need them again.

It will amaze you how long your cheese will last and how fresh it remains without drying out. Try some today. They also make a unique and interesting gift, with a variety of cheeses
