|Save your cheese!|
Since I like to bake my own breads and pizzas from scratch, I pick up my dry yeast and a big four or a five-pound block of mozzarella cheese at GFS Marketplace (Gordon’s Food Service), being the cheapest place in my area to buy those two items. What I do is cut and freeze pieces of the cheese, only leaving one piece in my refrigerator at a time. Before I ever tried this DIY tip to prevent mold on cheese, I would just take my chances and hope to use the cheese before mold could happen. Unfortunately, I was not always able to keep the cheese from mold free all the time.
To Prevent Mold on Cheese Is Easier Than You May Believe
Then I found this wonderful trick to keep any variety of a block cheese fresher longer. To preserve your cheese longer is relatively simple. Take two tablespoons of salt, add three cups of water and mix it thoroughly before immersing a paper towel in the mix.
After that paper towel is saturated, you loosely place it over your piece of cheese to cover before returning to your container in the refrigerator. Believe it or not, this does help prevent mold from growing on the cheese. The reason this works so well is that salt once dehydrated can stop microbial mold spores from forming.
