How to Store Stilton?

Proper storage is crucial to maximize the shelf life of Stilton and maintain its flavor and texture. Unlike some other cheeses, Stilton should not be stored in plastic wrap or airtight containers. It needs to breathe to prevent excess moisture accumulation, which can lead to undesirable mold growth.

The best way to store Stilton is by wrapping it in wax paper or parchment paper, allowing it to breathe. Place the wrapped cheese in the vegetable drawer or airtight container in the refrigerator. Stilton should ideally be consumed within one to two weeks of opening.
