  1. Choose to freeze sour cream in it’s original container OR in smaller cubes.
  2. To freeze it in it’s original container: I only suggest doing this IF you plan to use it all up when you unfreeze it. I DO NOT suggest re-freezing already frozen sour cream. Simply seal the container and place it in the freezer.
  3. To freeze it in smaller portions: find smaller containers OR an ice cube tray. Portion the sour cream out and seal those containers. If using an ice cube tray, freeze and then shortly after recomve the subes and place them in an air tight container. Place it in the freezer.
  4. To thaw: place in the fridge to thaw for a few hours or even overnight. When ready to use, mix thoroughly.
  5. Enjoy!
