Hi, Does anyone freeze sour creme or egg whites in cartons??? I would love to be able to stock up and just pull them out of the freezer. I HATE going out on days like today (snowing, blowing, blustery, freezing-25) but I'm out of sour creme. If anyone can help, your opinions would be much appreciated.. here I go out in the storm.
I have frozen egg whites before with success (I made IMBC with it). I just did a google search on freezing sour cream and it seems you can freeze it if you plan to bake with it but not if you plan to use it for a dip because the texture changes. It separates in the freezer and you have to stir it back together before using it. It sure beats going out with that kinda weather!
I think in general it is not a good idea to freeze dairy products because they can go bad even in the freezer, so I would say "no" on the sour cream. I think the egg whites would be ok. But I haven't frozen either of these items to say for sure. I understand not want to go out in this weather, we are getting a snow/ice storm today!
