Can You Freeze Sour Cream?

By

Question: I wondering if you could freeze sour cream and if so how long? Thanks for your time.

Answer: You can freeze it if you plan to use it in cooking or baking, but it is not recommended if you plan to use it as a dip or on your baked potato. Sour cream separates when frozen and takes on the consistency of cottage cheese. It’s fine to use, but won’t have the texture you would expect. For more resources, click here.
