It's no secret, we are fans of Daiya dairy-free "cheese". In fact, their shreds are sort of a staple in our house.
We use them in recipes like:
But today I'm not sharing a new cheesy recipe. Instead, I want to share how I store the shreds so they keep as long as possible. Because we can't afford for dairy-free cheese to go bad. Amen?!
Daiya shreds do not come with a zipper closure. Instead, you need to clip the bag shut somehow. And sadly, I have had the cheese go moldy pretty quickly when I store it this way once it's opened.
That's why I started dumping the shreds into an airtight container after we open them. I make sure they are spread out over as much surface area as possible and keep them airtight in the refrigerator. This prevents mold from growing quickly, and we can use them for up to a week or sometimes a little longer.
Since we use our Daiya cheese sparingly, this has been a great way to stretch it as far as we can...over a few meals in a week. I've been doing this for years now so just wanted to share. Cherish the cheese, peeps!
