Can You Freeze Feta Cheese?

Have you ever found yourself with a surplus of feta cheese and wondered if it is possible to freeze it for later use? The answer is yes! Freezing feta cheese can extend its shelf life and allow you to enjoy it over an extended period.

Before freezing feta cheese, it is important to drain any excess liquid and wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container.

Freezing feta can alter its texture, causing it to become crumbly upon thawing. However, frozen feta cheese is still suitable for use in cooked dishes such as casseroles or soups, where texture is less important.

To use frozen feta, simply let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight or incorporate it directly into your desired recipe.
