Can you freeze cottage cheese? The answer is Yes, and No. I know that sounds funny but YES you can freeze cottage cheese. Will it be as good as if it had never been frozen? NO! However, it really depends on how you plan to use it. I have frozen it to be used in lasagna or in other recipes with no problems.
Can you freeze cottage cheese?
By freezing cottage cheese, you can extend the life by 4 to 6 months. Just write the date you put it into the freezer with a permanent marker, so you know how long it has been there.
Cottage Cheese – You can freeze it directly in the original container or another air-tight container. It will affect the consistency due to the liquid content however if you are going to use it in baking it should be fine. I would not suggest it for eating in the original form as it will not have the desired consistency and I have found that Fat Free and Low Fat do not freeze well. I would suggest large curd – whole fat.
Ricotta – Would be similar to the above. There is less moisture so it may freeze better.
