    Can't speak for Maine, but through most of Virginia, I usually find small wedges of gratable hard cheeses at the normal groceries. It's really becoming popular.

    Great post... wow

    Papa D;
    this is accurate - - I often carry block cheese - - I actually like sharp cheddar cheese - - most times of the year a fairly firm block will last at least 3 days. I love Grafton Cheddar from Vermont. When we hiked the Long Trail, they sold cheese in convenience stores that you have to go to a gourmet shop to obtain where I live. Carrying pre-grated cheese works only for a single overnight camping trip - - beyond that, carry the block - the harder the cheese, the longer it lasts.




    Hi...


    Very true. And if you want to keep an opened block of cheddar even longer...whether on the trail or at home...keep it in a paper towel well moistened with vinegar...!! And then in a baggie or your preferred storage container, of course.

    All very good info. I think I will have to add hard cheese to my next hike menu.
