Does anyone here ever freeze sliced deli meat and cheese? I'd like to buy the larger packages of your basic deli items from Costco and divide them up and freeze them. Or will freezing ruin the food?
Thank you in advance for any advice or tips.
I have had mixed results.
With sliced cheese it freezes ok, but I have found that it is better to separate the slices, with waxed paper or cling film, before freezing if I want to use it for sandwiches.
I also have found that freezing meat like turkey, roast beef etc... works better for me than freezing lunch meat like bologna, olive loaf etc...
I have also found that short term storage of these items works best for me, a month to six weeks.
I would encourage you to experiment with a slice or two of your favorites and see how you like it before you buy several pounds.
