awesome, thanks! So you have frozen the block style in the manufacturer packing, right? Or do any extra to it with the food saver? I would so love to have one of those! I have been asking for one for christmas for the past 2 years LOL
Thank you again!

Re: freezing cheese?

I havent tried freezing the whole block in the original packaging because of how long it would take to defrost. We cut it up into a "typical use of cheese" or slice it or have shredded packages for burritos. Pull it out a few hours before dinner, or keep a stock of sliced in the fridge. One way to save $$ with the food saver is that we re-use the bags to re-freeze in.

We freeze cheese all the time. Slices, blocks and shreds. We cut the block into cubes for DD and freeze them in ziploc bags and pull them out a couple hours before we need them.

Re: freezing cheese?

I just recently froze cheese for the first time. I got a huge bag of shredded mozzarella cheese at Samsclub, and froze half of it in a gallon ziploc bag, squeezing out as much air as I could. I didn't use up the other half until a month later, and just yesterday I took out the frozen cheese to use. I put it, still frozen, on our pizza and it tasted fine. The rest has defrosted and does not appear to have changed in taste or texture. It's not a finely ground cheese, which may or may not make a difference, and like I said I only froze it for a month, so it did not have much time to get freezer burn.
