Can you freeze cheese?
Yes, you can! And it’s easy to do. Read this article to find out how and why. First of all, you’ll need to pick a few things up at the store. You’ll want some cheese that is in blocks or chunks and not pre-shredded (this will make it easier for your machine). For this article, we used cheddar cheese from Tillamook Cheese Company. To keep it really simple, opt for block cheeses like bricks or cubes so they are easy to measure by weight without having to do any math! We also picked up two types of shredded Mexican cheeses: one was already preshredded while the other was whole milk queso fresco.
Assemble Your Freezer Containers This can be as complicated or as simple as you wish depending on how much space you have in your freezer and how much you are trying to freeze. Make sure the containers you use are either BPA-free or made of food grade material (whatever is best for storing food). We opted not to include any more specific instructions here as it will depend on what type of product container/container size you are looking into using.
Label Your Containers with an Expiration Date You should label all frozen products with a date that indicates when they need to be used by so people know when their cheese needs to go back in the fridge! Be sure this is clearly marked, legible, and easy to read if possible. This way, there’s no confusion about whether or not someone wants old nacho cheese instead of fresh.
