Not only is pre-shredded cheese from the supermarket expensive, but it also comes packaged in hard-to-recycle plastic packaging. One way to go green and save money is to buy blocks of cheese from the deli counter and shred them yourself. To save time, shred the entire block of cheese at once and store the shredded cheese in a large freezer bag or reusable airtight container. To prevent the shredded cheese from sticking together, add a tablespoon of cornstarch to the bag and shake. It will lightly coat the cheese to prevent sticking and help keep it fresh longer. Store it in the freezer and use the cheese as needed.
