Freezing high moisture cheeses?

sasha1 | Sep 27, 2006 05:48 PM

I recently started feeding my infant cheese, and tend to use ricotta, cottage, and fresh mozzarella because they are lower in sodium.

But besides him and me, no one else in the family eats the stuff, and the containers are too large for us to finish quickly. In fact, because the baby is a baby with a fragile immune system, I want to give it to him while it is very fresh, so even if it hasn't spoiled, I wouldn't want to feed him older than week old fresh cheese.

Can these cheeses be partitioned and frozen? Would the taste or texture suffer upon thawing?
