Question: Can You Freeze Cheese?


Yes, you can freeze hard and semi-hard cheeses like cheddar, parmesan and mozzarella. However, soft cheeses like cream cheese, cottage cheese and ricotta do not freeze well.

For the best results, leave the cheese in its original packaging (or in a layer of plastic wrap); and then, place inside of a freezer bag.
