This is how we prepare our bulk food for storage. We divide the food into family size portions. Label EVERYTHING including the date! Here is a quick tip. When storing cheese. Slice the cheese into sandwich slices. Add a piece of wax paper between each slice of cheese. This will prevent the cheese from sticking together. Next, put the cheese into a gallon size freezer bag. Place into the freezer. When your family is ready for cheese simply thaw in the refrigerator.
