Hi phyloyd, mold generally can't penetrate far into hard and semisoft cheeses. You can carefully cut away at least 1 inch around the moldy part and eat the rest of the cheese. However, don't try this with soft cheeses, or any kind of cheese that's shredded, crumbled or sliced. When in doubt, throw it out!

Moldy cheese...My mother said just cut thr mold away from the cheese when we kids found moldy cheese in the refrigerator. What kind of cheese was that?

How do you easily remove the rind on brie? Is it okay to use the rind in recipes like the Pancetta and Cannelloni recipe?
