Can you freeze cheese? The answer is YES! Cheese is easily frozen in the package from the store. Just simply date it with a permanent marker with the date you are freezing it and place it in the freezer. I personally find that shredded and block cheese freeze very well. I also freeze cheese sticks and sliced cheese too! They can sometimes change consistency and become crumbled, but they are perfect for cooking with.
Can you freeze cheese?
By freezing you extend the life by 4 to 6 months past expiration or from time you freeze. You can also freeze it that is out of the original wrapper by placing in plastic wrap and then placing it into a freezer bag. I prefer the original package when possible as it is a time and money saver.
What will NOT freeze well is cheese singles that are individually wrapped in cellophane. They are not “real cheese” meaning they have a large water base to them as well as other oils and they don’t freeze as well as natural cheese.
Also, when thawing simply place in your refrigerator until thawed and use soon after thawed.
