Preserving cheese needs a specialty cheese wax. This wax will remain soft and pliable once set, making it easy to peel the wax from the cheese with it crumbling or cracking in brittle pieces.
This cheddar color cheese wax is colored with food grade coloring.
Depending on the size of you cheese depends how many can be covered. But typically 1lb will cover around 20 small cheeses when brushed on. Less if the cheese is wax dipped. Store in a cool place.
