Cheese is hard not to love. Whether it’s spread on your morning toast, drizzled onto a healthy lunchtime salad or simply stuffed inside meatballs, it has the power to make any meal extra special. To waste such a wonderful ingredient would be something of a tragedy. Sadly, we waste a whole lot: in the UK alone 3.1 million slices of cheese are thrown away everyday. Incidentally the UK also wastes 360,000 tons of milk annually (see how you can save yours here).
It’s never been more important to make the most of our resources, and considering how much energy dairy takes to produce, we should be making the very most of it. Luckily, there are many ways to prolong the lifespan of your dairy delights. Read on for a few fresh ideas for keeping your kitchen cheesy.
