Velveeta Cheese

According to the manufacturer, Velveeta does NOT need refigeration, even after opening. (Personally, I'd try to use it up in a day or 2 if I kept in on a shelf.)

Hard cheeses can be frozen. The texture does change but that doesn't matter if you use in ""grated"" recipes...lasagne, cheese sauces, casseroles. It crumbles so nicely that grating isn't necessary.
When you thaw cheese, if you put it in the refrigerator and let thaw slowly, over 1-2 days and texture will be closest to original texture. Apparently slow thawing anything always helps to preserve original flavor and texture. (Source: Unknown)

RE: Cheese from MRE Depot
http://www.mredepot.com/servlet/the-Can ... Categories

We were pleased with the cheese. It tastes more like American cheese than Cheddar to me, but I thought it was great to have decent cheese available that doesn't require refrigeration until after opening the can. Since the cans are only a 1/2 pound each, we'll easily use an entire can for a meal.

Making Cheese
http://www.americanpreppersnetwork.net/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=80

I make fresh from the cow cheese. I like it because I can control the amount of salt that goes into it and I know for sure there are no chemicals or hormones in the milk.

I start with 2 gallons of whole milk and heat it to 86 degrees. Then I add 1/2 tsp of mesophilic starter culture and let the milk ripen for 1 hour.

Waxing Cheese Yourself

Wax Coated Cheese
http://selfrelianceadventures.blogspot. ... heese.html

-snip-

ImageDid you know you can store cheese in your food storage without a refrigerator or freezer? Well, you can--at least that's what I was told by a lady in the food storage know, so of course I had to test it for myself (remember the sprouted wheat and the butter?).

Here's the short version: You can coat cheese in wax (approx 4 layers) and store it on a shelf, or you can buy Tillamook cheese and just stick it on the shelf since it's already in airtight, vacuum packed packaging. Start with mild as the cheese will age on the shelf and become quite sharp. ---Find out HOW at link, above ---

Cheese: Freezing Cheese

Freezing Foods
http://eatingfoodstorage.blogspot.com/2010/03/freezing-foods.html

-snip-

Cheese is another GREAT item to freeze. I was already freezing sliced cheese by buying it in bulk from Costco and then putting it in my freezer. If you defrost it in the fridge, the texture stays virtually the same. You can freeze blocks of cheese as well; however, it will become crumbly if you try to grate cheese that has been frozen. To avoid that, I buy grated cheese in a bag and put that in the freezer. Again, defrost in the fridge. I know that pre-grated cheese costs a little more but believe me, if you have to live without cheese, no cost will seem too great :) You might be able to grate your own blocks of cheese and then freeze it. I haven't tried that but I would be a little worried that it might turn into a giant clump of cheese and not stay separated like the store bought cheese does.

Cheese-Waxing Store Bought

:?: 11. Can I wax cheese I buy at the grocery store?

Yes. The moisture content drives the aging potential. A very dry cheese will be able to age for many years. A moist one will simply get old. A dry English style Cheddar can be aged 2-5+ years as are some of those made in Quebec. Most American Cheddar is designed to be ripe when released for retail.
