How to preserve the cured wedges?

Here are some tips on how to preserve the cured wedges of El Aljibe cheese:

- Wrapping: It is essential to cover the wedge of cured cheese in kitchen paper or plastic wrap to protect the cheese from air and moisture. By having it covered we will prevent it from being contaminated by other odors in the fridge and from drying out.

- Shelf life: Aged cheese can last a long time in the refrigerator, but keep in mind that over time its flavor will and texture may change. It is advisable to consume it within 2-3 months after purchase to enjoy it in its best state.
