2. Don’t Freeze These Cheeses

There are a few types of cheese that respond poorly to being in the freezer. This mostly includes fresh cheeses such as paneer and queso blanco and soft cheeses like brie. Hand-made cheeses also can’t handle the freezer and lose much of their flavor. Freezing and thawing also tend to severely damage cheeses with small holes or pockets. Other cheeses that nobody should attempt to freeze are camembert, cream cheese, stilton, and any low-fat cheese. Though mozzarella is normally fine in the freezer, it has high water content when it is fresh. Freezing it too early in its life will cause ice crystals to form.
