Kraft Crumbles cheese how to diy easily at home and freeze
Just saw an ad on TV for something called Kraft Crumbles which is a cheese product. Basically Kraft takes a cheese like their cheddar and makes crumbs of cheese which are rounder and chunkier than grated cheese strands.
I recognize them, I've been making them for years!
IT'S nothing more than my fast "grated" cheese run thru the food processor with the blade.
THAT IS HOW IT COMES OUT!!!!
Great product btw -- use it just like grated cheese. It will pack a bit denser than grated strands because of the shape so measure a bit less if you are using it cup for cup in a recipe. (about 3/4 or so per cup of grated strands)
take your cheese block and chop some chunks off, and then process in the food processor with the knife blade (the normal attachment) till its crumbly.
Cheese that has been frozen crumbles even easier so if you don't have the time to process it now, just cut into manageable chunks, wrap and freeze and process later.
A bit of flour (not much) or cornstarch helps keep the cheese crumbs from sticking together as it's nearly done in the processor. Just a tbsp per processor load.
FREEZE FLAT in SMALL ziplock sandwich size bags in 1 or 2 cup quantities.
this way it is premeasured and recipe ready AND
it freezes fast and thaws easily.
(you really DON'T want a 5 lb hunk of frozen stuck together cheese crumbs in a big icy ball that is gluey warm on the outside from microwaving it to hurry it along and still icy frozen on the inside trust me. I know. Don't ask how but trust me on this one. Keep it flat, and keep it small).

oh and if you hit a sale on cheese and want to know how to keep it for future use, this is ideal.
It's one of my FAVOURITE homemade in a flash instant conveniance products.
but I was doing it many years before Kraft thought of it and you can too!!!!

I got FIVE packages of the Kraft ones for $1.00 with double coupons! Not $1.00 each, but $1.00 for all five. Yay! Two and a half pounds of cheese. I did freeze some of them, and they were just fine after thawing.

Thanks, Margery- I always shred mine, but this would be even easier, and since it will be cooked anyway once I've frozen it, it doesn't really matter what the shape is.
WTG on that sale, Deb!!!
