I've smoked my first batch of cheese. I Vacuum sealed it. Now how do I store it, fridge or freezer? Thanks In advance.
Sounds good! Hard to believe it didn't melt @ 100 degrees, though....Maybe this is a redneck suggestion, but smoked Velveeta for cheese dip is awesome! I cut a block in half and smoked it for 45 minutes at 100 degrees. Let it sit for a day or two in the fridge and make cheese dip using the recipe on the Rotel can. Add a 1/2 pound of burger and a teaspoon of cumin for an added touch.
I figure any mold seed would be gotten while the cheese was airing a little after the smoke. Actually it seems smoking itself is a mold retardent (Hillbilly did an experiment not long ago that showed that).That olive oil dip makes total sense to me.
But maybe, a just opened that day bottle.
One that has been used repeatedly will have stuff dropped in from air that ? could ? seed mold the cheese.
