Freezing Ricotta Cheese

How long can I freeze an unopened container of ricotta cheese, and how do I thaw it out?

There are different schools of thought here. Paula Lambert, owner of the Mozzarella Company and author of The Cheese Lover's Cookbook and Guide, says you shouldn't freeze ricotta. But, of course, Ms. Lambert is used to the best of cheeses served under ideal conditions.

The folks at Sargento Reserve say you can freeze ricotta cheese, although the texture will suffer. You can certainly freeze it for six months. Thaw it in the refrigerator for a day or so. When thawed, there may be some liquid on top, which you should stir back into the cheese.
