My family and I absolutely LOVE cheese of all kinds, but it can be expensive to keep the fridge stocked. Here is a tip for saving money on cheese in the future.
When you purchase shredded cheese in a bag, the manufacturer charges you for that convenience. Also, the manufacturer puts additives in the bag to preserve the cheese and to keep it from clumping. So I have come up with an easy way to shred your cheese yourself, with little effort — whether it’s mozzarella, provolone or cheddar cheese for tacos.
All grocery store chains and wholesale clubs give you an option of buying the cheese in a block instead of the shredded cheese. Next time, choose the block cheese and follow these simple steps.
1- Place the cheese in the freezer for 15-30 minutes
2- Use a cheese shredder or a large grater to shred the entire block
* Now here is the secret to the cheese not clumping*
3- In a large container with a lid or a zip lock bag, add shredded cheese and put 1 Tablespoon of flour on top of the cheese. Secure lid or bag and shake vigorously. Make sure to store your cheese in an air tight container when done.
You will be amazed at how much more cheese you’ll get from that one block compared to a shredded bag of cheese that you buy at the store!
