Freezing Goat Cheese

bwf17's picture

I have two logs of goat cheese unopened from Costco and would like to freeze them.


I know it says on several sites that it is possible, but I don't want to ruin it.


Your experiences please.

Any time I have frozen cheese, it has turned out to be very crumbly.  Fine if you're making a quiche but no so on a cheese tray!

Thanks Sally, I was afraid of that.

I think what Sally said is true, but it will keep a good while unopened in the fridge.

I have frozen goat cheese many, many times. I use it as an ingredient when I thaw it. I like to make a pesto or basil stuffed chicken breast with goat cheese. Pamilyn

When you finally pull out one of those goat cheese logs from the freezer, try this recipe from Emily Luchetti.....delicious!

Has anyone made their own goat cheese? Suzanne of 'Chickens in the Road' talked about it this week. I believe she said it was easier than mozzarella or ricotta. I quickly decided that given the price I had to pay for milk that was not ultra-pasteurized that making mozzarella was not very economical. I have never priced goat's milk.

I've heard the same thing....that the cheese is easy.  I agree about the cost of the milk.  Not very economical to make homemade.

Unfortunately, I didn't realize that until after I bought the kit. Live and learn.

I live near a number of goat farmers.  I keep meaning to ask them if I can buy some of their milk for making cheese.


I checked the regulations once, and if I'm buying a small amount directly from the farmer, I think it was okay.  Need to recheck that.
