When there’s a great sale on at the grocery store for dairy products or eggs in bulk, you may walk on by, thinking that you won’t actually save money since you’ll never get through it all before the expiry date. But the great news is that you can actually take full advantage of promotions, sales and specials on these products as long as you know how to freeze them. Not many people feel comfortable with the idea of freezing milk, but here’s a video to put your mind at ease and hopefully save you some money!
When freezing milk, pour a little bit out before sticking it in the freezer since it can expand over time; you can keep it in there for a full month. When you want to defrost it, let it thaw out in the fridge overnight. Just give it a good shake after it’s fully thawed before drinking.
Cheese can live in the freezer for six months. The best way to do it is to grate the cheese before freezing so that you don’t get a crumbly block after thawing. If you really are hell-bent on freezing the block, though, let it thaw completely on the counter before refrigerating – this should combat the crumbliness.
An egg is not something that I thought cold be frozen, but surprisingly, you can keep them in the freezer for as long as one year! You can’t just stick them in, though, you need to crack the eggs, whisk them a bit and then pour them out into an ice cube tray.
Butter can just be popped into the freezer as is. Salted butter is the best option for freezing and can last up to a year, whereas its unsalted counterpart may lose its flavor after just one month of freezing.
When I read the comments section of the video I saw that a few people felt a bit confused since the lady in the video says not to freeze yogurt, but then follows it up by talking about freezing Go-Gurt. Here’s the deal, Go-Gurt (that’s Yoplait Tubes for you Canadians and Frubes for you Brits) is specifically made to be frozen, so the process is different to regular yogurt.
Quick Note: Eggs are not dairy, and I’m not quite sure why some people think they are. Dairy products are those that actually contain or are made from the milk of mammals.
