Questions from Readers... What Can I Freeze?

Last month, I got a bunch of free sour cream from Publix and had the same question. My assumption is that the texture of previously frozen sour cream may not be that great, so it might be more suitable in a cake recipe rather than on a baked potato, but I guess I’ll find out soon enough… (update: nope - sour cream or any cream in general doesnt store well. It comes out gritty!)

Check out the USDA site. It has some pretty decent information on what can be frozen, for how long, safety, quality, freshness, etc. It's a good site to bookmark so you can refer back to it when you're considering stockpiling items.

  1. Yeah, I froze sour cream once. It was really watery and runny. It's okay if you use it in cakes or other recipes.
