We happen to really enjoy cottage cheese. I know not everyone does, must be a texture thing, but we happen to be a family that really does. Plain with a good bit of cracked black pepper on top or as a key ingredient in a pasta dish it manages to make its way into many of our meals.
Whenever it goes on sale or markdown I like to stock up. I didn't used to, because I'd over buy and end up having it go bad before we'd eat it. I even tried freezing it, but didn't really care for how that altered the texture. Then I stumbled across this tip.
Store unopened tubs upside down in the refrigerator and it will literally last for months.
I was skeptical, but thought what the heck. I'll try it. And guess what?
It really works!
I've done it for years now and actually kept a 16oz. tub of cottage cheese in the refrigerator for 6 months. It was perfectly fine. I was amazed.
I don't know how it works, just know that it does. Anyone else know about this trick?
