Freeze-Dried Parmesan Grated Cheese

 

One bag contains 8.5 ounces of freeze-dried Freeze-Dried Parmesan Grated Cheese, which is the equivalent of 16 ounces, or a pound of fresh cheese.

 

Each Resealable Mylar bag has an oxygen and moisture absorber to ensure the longest shelf life possible.

 

Directions:

Freeze-dried Parmesan grated cheese is a convenient and long-lasting ingredient to have in your pantry. Here are some instructions for using it:

1. **Rehydration**: Before using freeze-dried Parmesan, you need to rehydrate it. To do this, you can either:

   a. **Sprinkle on Food**: Simply sprinkle the freeze-dried Parmesan directly onto your hot dishes. The heat and moisture from the food will rehydrate the cheese. This works well for dishes like pasta, pizza, and salads. 

   b. **Soak in Water**: If you prefer a softer texture, you can rehydrate it by soaking the cheese in water. Place the desired amount of freeze-dried Parmesan in a bowl and cover it with hot water. Let it sit for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until it reaches the desired consistency. Drain excess water before using.

2. **Use in Cooking**: Once rehydrated, you can use freeze-dried Parmesan just like freshly grated Parmesan. Here are some common uses:

   a. **Pasta**: Sprinkle it on top of your favorite pasta dishes, such as spaghetti, fettuccine alfredo, or lasagna.

   b. **Pizza**: Add it as a topping to your pizza before or after baking.

   c. **Salads**: Toss it into salads to add a cheesy kick.

   d. **Soups**: Garnish soups like minestrone or tomato soup with a pinch of freeze-dried Parmesan.

   e. **Omelets and Scrambled Eggs**: Mix it into eggs for extra flavor.

   f. **Bread Crumbs**: Combine with breadcrumbs for a cheesy coating for chicken or vegetables.

3. **Storage**: Freeze-dried Parmesan has a longer shelf life than fresh cheese. Store it in an airtight container in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. This will keep it fresh for an extended period.

4. **Experiment**: Don't be afraid to get creative with freeze-dried Parmesan. It can be used in many recipes that call for grated Parmesan, so feel free to experiment and find new ways to enjoy its unique flavor and texture.

 

Remember that freeze-dried Parmesan cheese may have a slightly different texture and taste compared to freshly grated Parmesan, but it's a convenient option for adding cheesy goodness to your dishes when you don't have fresh cheese available.

  •  When handling and storing freeze-dried foods, it's important to follow these instructions to maintain their quality and ensure food safety:

     

    1. Read Packaging Instructions: Carefully read and follow any specific instructions provided on the packaging of the freeze-dried food products. Handle uncooked freeze-dried foods the same as fresh raw foods.

     

    2. Properly Seal and Store: After opening the packaging, make sure to reseal it tightly to prevent air and moisture from entering. Properly sealed packaging helps maintain the quality and shelf life of freeze-dried foods. If the original packaging is not resealable, transfer the contents to airtight containers or resealable bags.

     

    3. Store in a Cool, Dry Place: Store freeze-dried foods in a cool, dry area away from direct sunlight, humidity, and heat sources. Exposure to these elements can compromise the quality, texture, and taste of the food. Aim for a storage temperature between 50°F (10°C) and 70°F (21°C).

     

    4. Protect from Moisture: Moisture is the enemy of freeze-dried foods as it can lead to spoilage. Keep the packaging or containers away from areas with high humidity or sources of moisture, such as sinks or steamy environments.

     

    5. Prevent Cross-Contamination: Use clean utensils or washed hands when handling freeze-dried foods to avoid cross-contamination with other ingredients or surfaces. This helps maintain the quality and safety of the freeze-dried products.

     

    6. Check for Signs of Spoilage: Before consuming or using freeze-dried foods, inspect them for any signs of spoilage. Discard the product if you notice off-odors, unusual colors, or mold growth. If the packaging is damaged or compromised, it's best to err on the side of caution and not consume the product.

     

    7. Rotate and Use Before Expiration: Freeze-dried foods have a long shelf life, but it's advisable to consume them before the expiration date mentioned on the packaging for the best quality. Practice proper first-in, first-out (FIFO) rotation to ensure older products are used before newer ones.

     

    By following these handling and storage instructions, you can maintain the quality, flavor, and nutritional value of your freeze-dried foods for an extended period, ensuring a satisfying culinary experience.
