What Is Hard Cheese?
Hard cheese is a type of cheese that has been aged for a longer period of time than soft cheese, resulting in a harder texture and stronger flavor. Examples include Parmesan, cheddar, and gouda.
How Is Hard Cheese Made?
Hard cheese is made using a similar process as other types of cheese, but it undergoes a longer aging period. The cheese is first curdled using a combination of rennet and bacteria, then the curds are separated from the whey, pressed, and aged for several months to several years.
How Should I Store Hard Cheese?
Hard cheese should be stored in the refrigerator, wrapped tightly in wax paper or aluminum foil to prevent it from drying out. It can also be stored in a plastic container with a tight-fitting lid.
How Long Does Hard Cheese Last?
