Can You Freeze Stilton?

Freezing is an excellent way to prolong its shelf life. However, before you toss that Stilton wedge into the freezer, you might want to consider a few factors.

Firstly, Stilton's texture may change when frozen and thawed. Once defrosted, it may become crumbly and lose some of its creamy consistency. However, this shouldn't affect its taste, and it can still be used in various recipes, such as sauces or soups.

For best results, wrap the Stilton tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Place it in an airtight freezer bag, ensuring all the air is removed. It is recommended to consume frozen Stilton within three months for optimal quality.
