Kitchen Tip Tuesdays: Freezing cheese
I've never frozen cheese. Can you freeze all types of cheeses? Is the texture the same? Do you leave it in the original wrapper? Any and all info would be VERY helpful.
I have frozen blocks of cheese like cheddar, mozzarella, pepperjack, colby, swiss, etc. I do freeze the blocks in their original wrappers.
The main difference I have noticed is that cheese that has been frozen tends to crumble when sliced or shredded. Different brands vary slightly, but in general the cheddar and mozzarella cheese seems quite crumbly after freezing.
For casseroles, pizza, or anything else requiring shredded cheese, the crumbles work great! For slicing or cubes, it doesn't work as well. :)
I'd love some more reader input on this one! What types of cheese have you frozen, and what were the results? :)
