  • Yup, I freeze cheese all the time. It tends to make it a little crumbly, but that's fine for shredding.

  • I freeze cheese all the time. I buy the big bricks and cut them into smaller chunks and I buy bulk bags of shredded cheese that I break down and freeze. Some of the softer cheese get crumbly. I have never noticed a flavor change.

  • We do all the time, as we don't eat alot of cheese, so it's acutally a money saver in our family.
