More March specials! Pretty lucky! :-)
More great specials this month. How lucky can you get? :-) That peach smoothie sure looks good! Then there's the cheese...
Rehydrating Freeze Dried Cheese To Perfection
Spread cheese thinly on a dinner plate or shallow pie plate.
Add COLD water and let rehydrate for about 10 minutes
Give it a little toss and spread it thinly again
Leave it to rehydrate another 5-7 minutes.
Strain by tipping plate slightly into the sink
Avoid using a strainer so your cheese won't clump together.
Wala - perfect rehydrated cheese!
I'm sure at this point you could let it dry out a little more then put it in a ziplock and refrigerate. Adding a little cornstarch to the dry cheese might help it not to stick, too :) You might ask why I use COLD water... well, have you ever left shredded cheese out on the counter on a warm day - gooey, clumps, right! Limit the clumping by using COLD rather than HOT water to rehydrate cheese. It works PERFECTLY!
At Shelf Reliance we sell FD Mozarella, FD Cheddar, FD Colby, and FD Monterry Jack!
