Do's and Don'ts of Freezing Soup

  • Most soups freeze well, except those containing cheese, cream, or other dairy products since they may separate and curdle when the frozen soup is thawed and reheated.
  • For successful frozen soups: Freeze soups without these particular ingredients, then add when gently reheating.
  • Freeze soups in individual Microwaveable & Dishwasher Safe Food Storage Containers # for a quick microwaveable lunch or snack.
  • Creamed soups generally do not freeze well.

For the best results when freezing soup:

  • Allow the soup to cool.
  • Portion approximately 2 full ladles per zip lock sandwich bag or small container.
  • Remove excess air from the bag or container as you seal it.
  • Rinse the sealed bags under the tap if necessary.
  • Lay the soup bags flat or set containers on a cookie sheet.
  • Slide the pan into your freezer overnight.
  • Next day remove the pan and put the individual serving bags or containers into a larger gallon size freezer bag.
  • Store frozen soup for 3 to 6 months.
