Italian Cheese Blend FAQ
Italian cheese blend is a flavorful combination of various Italian cheeses such as Provolone, Mozzarella, Asiago, Parmesan, etc. This blend provides a unique balance of taste, texture and melting properties that can be used to elevate numerous dishes, from pizzas and pastas to salads and sauces. A common question when cooking with the Italian cheese blend is when to add it during the cooking process and how much quantity to use. People often go wrong by adding too much of the blend or adding it too early in the cooking process which can cause the cheese to burn or lead to a greasy dish. To get the most out of your Italian cheese blend, sprinkle it on the dish towards the end of cooking so it has just enough time to melt into the other ingredients and give a deliciously rich, cheesy texture. Another great tip to use Italian cheese blend is mixing in a small amount to your sauces - it gives an added depth of flavor and richness.

Expiration & Storage Tips
When does italian cheese blend expire?
An unopened package of Italian cheese blend should remain fresh until the 'Best By' or 'Sell By' date on the label -- typically this is 2-4 months from the date of purchase. After opened, it should be consumed within 1-2 weeks for optimum quality and taste. If you've chosen to freeze your cheese blend (although this isn't very common as it may affect the texture), it can last up to 6 months. Remember, defrost it overnight in the fridge for the best results!
How do you tell if italian cheese blend is bad?
Check the cheese for moldy patches that are not a natural part of the cheese blend itself. A rotten smell is another sign that the cheese is off. If it feels slimy or sticky, it's likely that the cheese has spoiled. When in doubt, it's always safer to throw it away.
Tips for storing italian cheese blend to extend shelf life
• Always store your cheese in the coldest part of your fridge, which is usually near the back and lower down. • After opening, tightly wrap it in plastic cling wrap or aluminum foil. You could also use a cheese paper for better results, if available. • If you have a large quantity, consider portioning it out and only taking what you need out of the fridge or freezer at a time, leaving the remainder undisturbed. • Don't freeze and defrost your cheese multiple times. This may affect the texture and taste of the cheese. • Harder cheeses like Parmesan in the blend will typically last longer than softer ones like Mozzarella, so keep this in mind when using and storing the cheese.
