Queso fresco shelf life

Queso fresco shelf life

comestible | Apr 25, 2010 08:37 PM

Hi, all. We're fortunate in my section of NY City that the Mexican groceries sell several brands of Queso Fresco. Although marked with a sell-by date about a month distant, I find that once opened, the cheese starts going off within about four days. Is this considered normal?

As it is not inexpensive, this is a concern. If this is normal, I'd be happier if it were sold in sizes half as large. I do notice that Friendship farmer cheese (a popular substitute) lasts a good deal longer.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
