Can you cut green mold off longhorn cheese and eat the non-moldy part?
Yes. Cut off about 1/2 inch from each affected side and use the remaining cheese within a week. To keep cheese at its peak flavor, you must store it properly. In general, unopened cheese stored in the refrigerator between 34 and 38 degrees F will retain its quality beyond any freshness date stamped on the package. The key lies in keeping it tightly wrapped to prevent exposure to air and airborne mold spores.
