How to freeze cheese

Many housewives are interested in the question of whether hard cheese can be frozen for storage. For example, there are situations when you have bought a lot of cheese at a good price and something needs to be done with it. Or you are leaving for a long time and do not want the food in the refrigerator to go bad. In such situations, hard cheese can be frozen.

Frozen cheese is then most often used to make pizza or pasta. Thawed cheese will crumble at the time of cutting, so it is better to grate it immediately or cut it into the necessary slices (for example, for making hot sandwiches). After thawing, such cheese should be eaten in a couple of days.

It is best to freeze cheese in portions - as much as you need to prepare one dish. Cheese can be frozen in small portions, slices (it is very convenient to use such cheese for making hot sandwiches) and grated.
