Budget101.com : Re: does chowder freeze well?

Is that New England clam chowder or Boston clam chowder? I would wonder about a milk-based broth freezing well.

    Why are you afraid of freezing things with milk? When I received milk from Wick
    I use to freeze the extra milk and never had any problems. I also freeze
    products that I make off and on with a milk base and never have a problem, as
    long as they aren't in the freezer for an extended length of time. I have never
    had any problems. Donna

    A lot of foods made with milk (i.e, in a cream sauce or with a milk broth)
    don't freeze well. The milk separates. For example, I can freeze 1% milk
    with no problem, but I can't freeze Half and Half. It separates after
    thawing and tastes terrible.

    I have never frozen half and half or sour cream or cottage cheese, but I have
    frozen 2% milk and WHOLE milk and never had a problem. I have frozen clam
    chowder and potato chowder before too and it worked very well. I froze the
    chowder in individual servings, not one huge bucket of it. I don't know if that
    made a difference.

    The whole milk does seperate after freezing, but all I do is shake it back up to
    remix and it tastes just fine to me.

    I think I mentioned before too that I don't leave milk in it's original
    container to freeze either. I rebottle it in 1 quart containers to put into my
    large freezer. This does a few things, when it comes from the freezer to the
    fridge for defrosting it takes only overnight to defrost, it also keeps the
    original, disposible container from bursting or breaking. The other thing it
    does is makes it so that the smaller amount of milk in the fridge so that my
    husband and I use it up before it spoils. And last but not least, the
    smaller container is easier to shake and remix after freezing than the huge
    gallon size one.

    Yes, I have frozen milk with no problem, but with Half and Half, even if you
    shake it up, it won't blend. If you pour it into coffee, you end up with a
    bunch of curds floating around, and the coffee looking like you put skimmed
    milk into it. Tastes horrible. I was disappointed, because I am always
    running out of Half and Half, and after the successful milk freezing
    experiment, I was hoping to be able to have an "emergency" supply of Half
    and Half in the freezer!
