How often do you
go to grate a block of cheese, especially one of the softer
cheeses such as mozzarella, only to have it break and crumble
on you as you try and grate it? Here is a trick next time
you need to grate cheese.
Ten or fifteen
minutes before you need to grate the cheese, simply pop it
in the freezer first. This will chill the cheese enough so
that it won't crumble or break when you grate it.
And just in case
you are wondering, it is usually cheaper to buy a block and
grate it yourself, but if the packages of grated cheese are
on sale, the packages might actually be cheaper!
