So you are walking down the isle of Costco and you see that huge block of cheese. You think to yourself, “I really need cheese but not that much.” Here is the thing homie, you can freeze that mofo. We purchased our FoodSaver a few years ago. A purchase I didn’t think we would ever really use. Holy moly, we use the crap out of this thing and I just love it. I freeze spaghetti sauce, chili, soups, meat, I mean you name it I’ll freeze it.
We go through a lot of cheese and that block of cheese at Costco, has always enticed me but I knew we would waste most of it. So I did a little research and what in the world, YOU CAN FREEZE CHEESE. The only thing I have found so far, beside remembering to take it out of the freezer, is that it is a bit on the crumbly side. You can still grate it with no problem it just has a slightly different consistency. The taste is great so it doesn’t bother me. The best part is, is that it last up to a year in the freezer. Heck yes, one more thing to add to the FoodSaver list. Here is what you want to do.
If you haven’t already purchased a FoodSaver, I highly suggest you buy one of those bad boys. It makes like so much easier. When I freeze stuff like chili, soups or sauce I just boil water in a huge pot and drop the whole bag in my water. Let it heat up and BAM instant delicious meal for those, “crap I don’t know what to do for dinner!” nights. Seriously, buy a FoodSaver. Anyway, on to cheese.
Cut your cheese into whatever size blocks that tickle your fancy.
Seal up your bags on one end and label right away.
Place your cheese in bag and vacuum seal it up. I like to fold the top of the bag over so that what ever I am putting inside, does not get the outside of the bag dirty. This is a must when bagging up chili or sauces.
Umm BAM, you just saved some money yo.
Happy Freezing! Or Cheesing!
