I don't see why not. Are you talking about a whole cheese, or just a piece you bought in a shop?

I know this is a little off subject but NAITA's question reminded me. I rarely eat jam and usually find that my almost full jar has grown a little mould when I come to use it for the second time. Is it possible to wax jam ()? Or does any kind person have a suggestion on how to Save My Jam?

I was talking about a piece I bought in the shop, and I think waxing and re-waxing it would probably be more expensive than just buying a new piece when the old one gets moldy.
This probably applies to garbled as well. You can wax jam, but it might not be worth the trouble. You probably need to heat the jam up to the melting point of your wax to get an even seal. I seem to remember my mom doing this for home-made jam as an alternative to hermetically sealed jars.
What definitelly works though is portioning stuff and freezing it. This might not work for everything, but it works for jam.
