Re: Should I be refrigerating milk before freezing

Well good. I have been putting it straight in the freezer and then for some reason today I thought maybe it needed to cool slower. I don't know why. I actually prefer to put it straight in the freezer because it freezes before it separates. No need to swish it before serving.

Re: Should I be refrigerating milk before freezing

I was doing straight to freezer, but then talked to a LC and they told me to refrigerate first and then put to freezer....

Not sure why, but it got me worried so thats what I did.

I never got a chance to freeze with my current youngest, he was too much of a little piggy to ever let anything have to be frozen.

I was told that it can go straight to a *deep* freezer, but should be refrigerated before going in a regular kitchen freezer because the standard freezer doesn't cool fast enough for food safety.
