A couple of weeks ago, I discovered that I had two really large blocks of mozzarella cheese in the refrigerator. I had bought the second block thinking that I didn't have any more cheese. I'm sure y'all have done similar things before, right?
I didn't want the cheese to go bad, but I didn't need to use it all right then. Thankfully, I remembered that a friend told me she had, at one time, shredded her cheese and frozen it all in freezer bags. Well, I decided to try it out for myself.
I grated my cheese with my trusty box grater and put it all in a freezer bag. I made sure all the air was out of the bag and zipped it up. I made sure that the bag was lying flat when I put it in the freezer. It was quick and easy and I was hoping and praying that when the time came for me to use the cheese, it wouldn't be one huge lump of shredded mozzarella!!!!
Well, I pulled it out yesterday and it was PERFECT!!!! The individual pieces of cheese did NOT stick together!! I was quite happy with the results and will most definitely be doing this again!!!
What did I need to use the shredded mozzarella for yesterday? Why, quick "pizza" for Elizabeth and me, of course!!!
