What is Aged Cheese Wedge?
The old wedge is made by hand with pasteurized sheep's milk. This wedge of cheese is firm and compact, with a very pleasant smell and a firm rind. It has an ivory and natural color. Its cure is more than 12 months. During the maturation process, the cured cheese is subjected to specific conditions of temperature and humidity, which contribute to the formation of its distinctive flavor and texture.
How to preserve the old wedges?
Here are some tips on how to preserve aged wedges of El Aljibe cheese:
- Wrapping: It is essential to cover the wedge of aged 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.
- Temperature: To keep the cheese in good condition it is necessary to keep it cool, between a temperature of between 4º and 8º, since if we keep it at lower temperatures this can negatively affect the cheese.
- Separation of odors: If you have different types of cheese in the refrigerator, it is important to store them separately to prevent flavors and odors mix.
- 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 recommended to consume it within 2-3 months after purchase to enjoy it in its best state.
