My parents sent me a gift for my birthday and forgot to mention that perhaps I should open it immediately.
I open it today and discover it is a collection of British cheeses Including:
1. Linconshire Cheddar (cut and vacuum sealed) (unpasteurised milk)
2. British Blue Stilton (cut and in a similar bag but doesn't seem to be vacuum sealed)
3. a small semi-soft cheese medallion / round - triple cream white mould (loosely wrapped in plastic) uncut. (unpasteurised milk)
4. a wedge of a semi-hard goats cheese / goats cheddar (cut in a similar vacuum sealed plastic wrap)
5. a chunk of butter
So its been in the box in the living room for about a week. at room temperature here in London. The weather hasn't been too warm here and we haven't had the heat on at all. So i'd say its been sitting at 19-20C for a week. Are the cheeses going to be ok?
- The butter has a few spots of black mould on it - so I think its a lost cause.
- The stilton seems to have been sweating a bit. Should I open it and repack it?
- the semi-soft medallion I think will be OK if we eat it ASAP. its looking very "ripe". So will probably be quite good and not be a problem.
- The linconshire cheddar doesn't seem to have sweated much. Should I open the vacuum pack and put it in paper in the fridge?
