Not only is pre-shredded cheese from the supermarket expensive, but it also comes in hard-to-recycle plastic packaging. One way to go green and save money is to buy blocks of cheese from the cheese counter and shred them yourself. To save time, shred the entire block of cheese at once and store the shredded cheese in a large reusable freezer bag. To prevent the shredded cheese from sticking together, add a tablespoon of cornstarch to the freezer bag and shake to lightly coat the cheese; the cornstarch will also help keep the shredded cheese fresh longer.
