      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.

      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.
