Just half, remove the stone, wrap, then freeze.
Grate/Slice the cheese and place it in an airtight bag or container. Warning – it may be more crumbly than usual when removed from the freezer.
Chop, wrap, freeze, then cook from frozen when required!
Separate the yolks and whites, then place into ice cube trays with a pinch of salt (if planning to use for savoury dishes) or sugar (if planning to use for sweet dishes). Thaw in the fridge overnight before required then use straight away.
5. Olive Oil
Freezing olive oil is a great way to portion the right amount up for each dish and will stop it going rancid if left in the cupboard too long. Just pour oil in ice cube trays to get the same amount every time! Add herbs if and use straight from frozen in the pan.
