Productive Day

It's not even noon yet, and already I have prepared and frozen enough food to last us for a month. I had a truckload of fresh fruits and veggies left over from the baby shower, so I spent the morning packing them up in handy portions for future use. I stewed 4 lbs. of grape tomatoes, cooked 5 lbs. of carrots, blanched 2 XL quarts worth of French green beans, roasted a heaping half-sheet pan of red peppers and produced 2 quarts of sauteed mushrooms. I also froze 2 lbs. each of fresh pineapple and mango. That leaves me with about 3 lbs. of strawberries, a flat of 30 fresh apricots and a giant bag of limes; I'll probably freeze the strawberries, then make some apricot preserves and lime sorbet. After we return from GeoWoodstock, that is.

Speaking of freezing, is there a way to freeze cheese? I'm skeptical. But I have a couple of lbs. of jarlsberg, muenster and provolone that I'd like to find something to do with. Maybe we'll wind up having some kind of fondue free-for-all.

I freeze shredded cheese with no problems. Just pop it in the fridge about a day before you need it. Sliced cheese is more of a problem, depending on what kind. no idea about blocks.

Maybe you could shred a ton of it and freeze it that way? Although that is a LOT of work!!

I actually considered the shredding method. You're right--it would be a lot of work. Thanks for the input!

Just wrap it up well and freeze away. None of those are creamy enough that the texture will be funky after it thaws.

Yeah, that's kind of what I was thinking. Thanks for the validation, o goddess of the kitchen!
