    Can paneer and ricotta be frozen? If so, is there anything special we do for them?

    Would I be able to make ricotta for the whey from panneer?

    Freezing Ricotta makes it grainy and the liquid separates out a bit. Sorry I don't make paneer so no idea about how it will freeze. The only cheese I freeze is Chevre.

    I just froze some panneer/vinegar cheese on the 12th to see for myself if it will work, will let you know how it worked out when I defrost and try to use it.

    So my cheese was frozen for 2 weeks, I put it in the fridge to defrost and used it the next day.
    It came out just same as when it went in the freezer. I am very pleased


    I did see any answer on this so I found one for you :D

    This is from the Fiasco farm site

    Thank you for posting the answer! That was very kind of you. I guess the dogs will enjoy the whey.
