Proper storage of cream cheese
If you want to store large pieces or a whole cider cheese cheese wheel more than 2-3 weeks, we recommend the use of a tea towel.

If the cheese turns white or stains it is usually the salt or Casein is a constituent of the protein (protein) of cow's milk, which is obtained for cheese production. that crystallizes due to the temperature difference. These places are easy to rub off.
The use of aluminum foil is possible (but we advise against it) if it is supplemented with many small holes because of the air supply.
