Quick Answers



Can I use cottage cheese cartons for freezing?

Cottage cheese cartons and similar containers are not moisture- vapor-proof and are not intended for freezing. Foods in them will be safe but the flavor will deteriorate. The longer they remain in the freezer, the poorer in flavor and quality the food will become.
