Question 2

Merell thanks for responding so quickly. You said one should refrigerate Romano Pecorino and olive oil mix and not leave it out. I know it's kept cold, but even if it is the ageded (9mth) cheese?? Also if you are using real garlic (fresh) with olive oil does that have a shelf life too? Thanks so much. Have recommended your sight to a lot of folks!
