How To Store Gruyere Cheese

Proper storage plays a crucial role in preserving the quality and taste of Gruyere cheese. To keep your cheese fresh for as long as possible, it's important to store it correctly. The best method is to wrap it tightly in wax or parchment paper, which helps maintain moisture levels while allowing the cheese to breathe. Alternatively, you can store it in a resealable plastic bag or airtight container.

Keep the cheese refrigerated at a temperature between 35°F and 40°F (1.7°C and 4.4°C) to slow down the aging process.

Remember to separate the cheese from other strong-smelling foods to prevent flavor transfer.
