Bandage Wrapping Cheese for Aging

Mold Growth

Q. I have a cloth-bandaged Cheddar in my cheese cave. Do I have to manage the mold? Some recipes don't say anything. Other recipes advise to brush off mold and reapply a coat of lard, say weekly. 

A. All you need to do is turn your cheese weekly. The lard is only used when initially applying the bandage wrap.
