Can I freeze cheese?
It is possible to freeze cheese. Some hard, or semi – hard cheeses can be frozen without greatly affecting the flavour.
Not all cheeses will freeze well, however, especially soft cheeses such as cream cheese and cottage cheese which can become watery and grainy in texture. Freezing can also affect the texture of some hard cheeses, making it crumbly and harder to use. For this reason the best use for frozen cheese is for cooking. If you do wish to freeze cheese, for best results, you should grate it first and then store it in an airtight plastic bag. Avoid freezing blocks of cheese as it will lose a lot of moisture and become crumbly.
