  • About
Cheese should not be tightly covered.
When it becomes dry and hard, grate and keep covered until ready to use. It may be added to starchy foods.
Soda, in cheese dishes which are cooked, makes the casein more digestible.
A soft, crumbly cheese is best for cooking.
Cheese is sufficiently cooked when melted, if cooked longer, it becomes tough and leathery.
