    Default Can you freeze sour cream for later use?

    I imagine since it's a dairy product it can be forzen for later use, like milk or yogurt. Would give it a good stir once thawed!Has anyone tried this? How'd it go?

    It gets runny. I wouldn't recommend it. It depends what you want to use it for when it thaws though. But it's too runny for something like putting on your baked potato.

    I really wish it could be frozen. Sometimes we run across it really cheap and it would be nice to be able to stock up.

    You could try freezing a few tablespoons yourself and see if you'd be satisfied with the result. It tastes fine, it's just runny.

    We do freeze it, but we only use it in things because the texture is off. A friend tosses a container or two in the freezer when they are cheap to use in stroganoff.

    I hadn't thought of freezing sour cream. I don't use it much and always end up throwing some of it away. I only use it in things like casseroles, so the texture wouldn't matter.

    Thanks for the idea!

    Dehydrated works great, and lasts without refridgeration . . .
