BLUE CHEESE PIERCING TOOL / NEEDLE
Pierce your Blue Cheese when aging to encourage / enhance the formation of internal 'Blue Veins'
4.75" Needle (12 cm) with storage case.
Cleaning: Hand wash and dry; store in case
When aging your Blue Cheese (at about 50-60F) and after 7-14 days and when Blue Mold is prominent on outside of cheese, use this tool to pierce the cheese to
allow improved 'Blue Vein' formation inside the cheese. Hold the cheese in one gloved hand, and pierce the sides several times as well as the top
and bottom. Gently rotate the needle to expand the hole, remove and reinsert for the next hole. After piercing, we recommend wrapping your
aging Blue Cheese in BLUE CHEESE FOIL and continuing to age in your AGING CONTAINER at a lower temp (normal refrigerator works) of about 40-45F for
another 6-8 weeks, flipping once a week. Keep a small container of H2O in the Aging Container to keep humidity up.
Shipping included in the 48 States. International shipping available.
