Thanks for everyone's input on my FF sour cream post. Nanny129 brought up a good point - fill the freezer with $.50 cent sour cream! Can sour cream be successfully frozen? Thanks all!

i do it all the time- cream cheese too- not for just eating- but is fine for cooking:-)i freese stuff noone thinks about- i always freeze marshmallows and candy for cooking:-)whole peaches-apples-berries-bananas- as long as i am planning on using them to cook- works fine- i always rotate so as to use the oldest first:-)

I was told sour cream cannot be frozen, would turn to liquid when thawed, so I never tried it! does it stay just as thick when thawed?

Thanks Nanny! As soon as my husband shovels the drive, I'll high tail to town to load up on sour cream! They plowed the roads early this morning, thank goodness!

Based on Nanny's answer, sounds like it works o.k. to freeze. I'll try a pint first. At $.50 cents, I can afford to experiment.

and i freeze yogurt too- when i thaw- i place a paper coffee filter in a colendar(sp) in a bowl in the fridge - then when it thaws the excess water has drained in the bowl- it is like magic:-)

just pop the sour cream or yogurt out when frozen into the filter- that way it drains

Wow! Good to know! We just through out a couple of Chobani Greek yogurts because my husband won't eat anything past the exp. date. It was just 1 day beyond the exp. date. What a waste!

When hubby wants something to eat in that situation {ex. date} get it for him, in a bowl, or plate etc. and he'll never know what the container said, for the date. Most stuff if unopened last's awhile, there's tons of preservatives in it. As they say sometimes what we don't see , won't hurt. lol

I kinda do like nanny but I put in a coffee filter and put the filter over a container (clear 1 qt deli) then put the lid on the container so the yogurt and filter are suspended. I do use the extra large commercial coffee filters.

that's funny Pamela- when we changed out the coffee maker where i used to work noone else wanted them( i took them all- probably thousands) i got them to line clay pots with- keeps the dirt from falling through without have the weight of rocks- lol- i find all kinds of uses for them-i have glass tables(dh used to be in the glass business lol) they make great use of cleaning glass- no fuzzies:-)

Good snag nanny! I also use the coffee filters for microwave plate covers. The large size covers a dinner plate no prob.

Yogurt Cheese

A delicious, creamy cheese that perks up bagels and sandwiches. Very simple to make and the variations are endless. You could easily experiment with many other ingredients such as, chopped olives, fresh herbs or sweet ingredients.

Fresh, creamy ricotta cheese is easy to make at home from ingredients you can find in any grocery store. Use it in pastas, as a spread, or in any recipe that calls for ricotta. It's also a great breakfast treat with fresh fruit.

The experts at Still Tasty don't recommend freezing sour cream. ...
