Finally it is burden free for the cater, meaning they have no difficulty in arranging the main ingredients.

    Freeze-dried cheesecake is a trendy technique in sweet preparation these days. According my viewpoint, there are many positive points compared to the normal cooked cheesecake.

    In addtion, it is a completely issued free based on the main material's arrangement. For the normal baked cakes, you have to go supermarkets for buying main ingredients like cheese,creames etc. It takes more time with buying ticket, parking car, selecting material, then eventually you have to wait for your cooked cheesecake.

    Preparation Before Freeze Drying

    When you freeze your cheesecake, there are a few steps you need to make sure to take before freeze-drying so that the process will go well:

    Reheat the cheesecake: In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the cheesecake for one minute. Turn, and heat for another minute. You can also heat the pie in a pie plate for the same amount of time. Cool it for about 5 minutes in the microwave (plate) on the stove to prevent the tip from melting. Then, serve.

    Cut it up: Trim the cheesecake into smaller pieces (four cakes per week) or, better yet, cut it into individual portions or bites. That way, the portions can stand uninterrupted as they undergo the freeze-drying process.

    Make sandwich sheets: Assemble the cheesecake slices on a tray lined with parchment paper and leave some space between them so that they won’t stick together.

    How to Freeze Dry Cheesecake

    Now let's dive into the process of freeze-drying cheesecake:

    Prior to freezing: Place the tray containing the slices of your cheesecake into the freezer and leave it there to freeze for at least 4 to 6 hours, or overnight until completely solid.

    Transfer to the cm: After the cheesecake slices have been frozen, carefully move them into your freeze dryer. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for using the freeze-drying equipment you are using.

    Set up freeze-dryer: Set control knobs for time and temperature. Set 48 hours at -40°C and at a pressure of 0 mmHG.

    Begin the freeze-drying process: Turn on the freeze dryer, and allow it to remove moisture from the cheesecake slices over the span of several hours.

    Check the process: The time it’ll take for your machine to finish freeze-drying your cheesecake will depend on the size and thickness of the pieces you put in. Ideally, the entire process – including the initial cooling process – will last about an hour or two. However, the low temperature can take a maximum of 12 to 48 hours to completely complete.

    Test for dryness: Having rested the cheesecake slices for the indicated time, poke a finger into the top to see if they have dried completely and gone crisp. The slices should be firm throughout and dry to the touch.

    Take from the freeze dryer: Once the shelves are out of the machine, it’s time to take the slices of freeze-dried cheesecake.

    Let them cool: Let the freeze-dried slices of cheesecake cool completely to room temperature (about five minutes) and then proceed.
