Just ordered some Grande cheese
« on: February 23, 2005, 02:36:35 PM »
Just bought a 5 Pound bag of 50/50 blend (mozzarella/provalone) grande shredded cheese :D

Cant wait to see if i notice any difference, after this bag is out i'll probably try the part skim then the whole milk.

Im pretty amped! :D

Anybody have any suggestions for the best way to dethaw the frozen shredded cheese after i freeze the leftovers? I'm gonna divide everything up into smaller bags to put in the freezer.

5lb Diced Part Skim Mozzarella                           $3.29/lb
5lb Shredded Part Skim Mozzarella                    $3.29/lb

6lb Whole Milk RWT Mozzarella                           $3.19/lb

5lb Diced 50/50 Blend (Mozzarella/Provolone)        $3.35/lb
5lb Shredded 50/50 Blend (Mozzarella/Provoone)    $3.35/lb

I purchase from Verns as well. I've never tried their 50/50, i just get the 5 pound bad of diced part skim. What i do is portion out the cheese where each portion would equal what i put on 1 pie. I then vaccum seal it and pop it in the freezer. If you take it out a day before and put it in your fridge it will be perfectly thawed out. Typically you should get 3-4 months in the freezer with no ill effects.

Snowdy, I recently ordered and received a 6lb lbock of Grande whole milk mozz fron Vern's.  They were great to work with.  This was my first time using Grande.  I found it way too salty. 

Have you tried it yet?

Hi, do you have a link to the Grande cheese on their website?  I looked on there and found 6lb. blocks of mozzarella but it doesn't say what brand it is or anything. 

Thanks a lot.

P.S.  So far the best cheese I have been able to find in my area is from GFS.  It's their Mozzarella & Provolone blend.  I really want to try the Grande but I can't find it around here.
