We go through it so fast that I've never actually thought about it. The stuff at the store keeps for a couple of months at least, I would think that the homemade would last at least as long?
I'm due in a month and have decided to make a double batch of yogurt (two gallons instead of one) each week until the baby comes: one gallon for the current week and one for the next. I was hoping to have at least have a couple of weeks of yogurt ready to go when she comes. But, I started thinking and I don't see why I can't go ahead and make enough yogurt to last us a month or six weeks (if I have the space in the fridge!!!) so that's one less chore I have to worry about during the newb stage. Anybody have experience in making yogurt in bulk quantities and storing it?
How well would yogurt freeze for thawing and eating later? My MW wants me to have some frozen yogurt on hand for smoothies and such, but I mean specifically for thawing and then eating.
I make a no-knead sourdough for our daily bread. Can I make up a big batch of dough and freeze it and bake later? Or does that not work with sourdough/no-knead. Am I better off baking several loves and sticking them in the freezer? If the later option, should I pre-slice the bread? I've never actually dealt with frozen homemade bread before.
