Canning cheese

A reader sent me a link to a website called Frontier Freedom that has a very interesting post on how to can cheese.

I haven't tried it yet, but you can be sure I will soon!

    I found this link the other day too , while googling on how to can cream cheese ( Enola must be busy and hasn't had time to post a how to on the topic) . I have printed the directions as it is a neat site. Side note: I found that has the book "Putting Food By" edition 4 for 4.95 and edition 5 for 6.95
    you can order on the web via link to their other website that can handle credit cards or by check ,mail in from the above mentioned site. No affiliation ... just looking to pass on the savings as I have ordered there MANY times and have always had great service. I ordered my copy last night :)


  2. A Great Big THANK YOU to Tina for posting that about "Putting Food By" at I've been wanting a copy, but hadn't really tried to find one because I thought I wouldn't be able to afford it.

    Placed my order and can't wait for it to arrive!


  3. I follow this blog, and here's her post where she tried it, with pictures:

  4. I found Frontier Freedom over the weekend while looking for information on making soap and using woodash to make lye. It looks like they might not be updating, as all of the back issues are from 2007. I have bookmarked, and I hope they will add new material!
    Thanks for mentioning the site, maybe they will get more traffic...

  5. I started canning cheese last year by following Jackie Clay's instructions, here:

    After about 15 months, I tested a jar and it was wonderful. Plan to check another one at 2 years. If you never hear from me again, it was bad. :)

  6. Duh...that was my post bethanial11 quoted. Glad I checked, because my memory failed on the instructions I gave a minute ago. Here is a post where I talk about the process:

  7. Sorry, my computer hit a glitch and I'm not sure if you got this comment, so I'm sending it again... sorry if it's a double.

    This book has another way of preserving cheese which I thought you might be interested in. It also has many other old and "forgotten" methods of preserving food without canning or freezing. These ways usually use less energy (yours as well as expensive electricity or propane, etc.) and retain more nutrients. For a prepper, I think this book is WELL worth the expense.
