To prevent a chunk of hard cheese from getting moldy, dampen a piece of cheesecloth (or any thin cloth) with apple cider vinegar and wrap it around the block of cheese before sealing it in a plastic bag. The acid in the vinegar will deter mold…and it won’t interfere with your cheese’s great flavor or make it mushy.
