Quick Answers

 

 

Can natural cheese be frozen?


The following cheeses freeze well in small pieces of one pound or less, not more than one inch thick: Brick; Cheddar; Edam; Gouda; Muenster; Port du Salut; Swiss; Provolone; Mozzarella; and Camembert. Small quantities of Blue, Roquefort, and Gorgonzola can also be frozen for salads and salad dressings, or other uses where a crumbly texture is acceptable. Most natural cheeses can be frozen for short periods. See MP 556 "Storing Foods In the Freezer" for length of storage for various natural cheeses.
