How To Freeze Milk!

                                         I Know I Know sounds a little Crazy. But Yes you can Freeze Milk!

Milk is a staple in most homes. Some Family's of only 4, 2 being children will go through 2-3 gallons of milk a week. Now add teenage boys to that number at it will go up to 3-4 gallons a week. At a cost of $4-$6 a Gallon in most grocery stores this can really start putting a dent in your Food Budget.

So what should we do?
 One word SALE, SALE, SALE!

Find a good sale on milk, buy a couple of them wall they are at a good price. Then Freeze them, After all when Frozen they last up to 2 months.


How to Freeze Milk:

  1. Open each milk container. Because the milk will expand when frozen, empty out an inch or more of milk.
  2. Write down your own expiration date the would be 2 month from date frozen. (the factory-printed expiration date will be inaccurate once the milk is thawed)
  3. No place in your freeze for a later time (see super easy)


How to Defrost: 
  1. Take milk out of freezer and wright Defrost date on it. (once milk is defrosted it will only last 10 days)
  2. Put milk in Refrigerator.
  3. Give milk a good shake before opening because it can separate during thawing process.


Tips:
  • Repackage the milk in smaller containers if there isn't enough room for milk jugs in the freezer.
  • Freezing can change the texture of the milk once it's thawed, so consider testing it out in a small batche to make sure you like the results.
  • you can store the milk for up to 2 months in the freezer
  • To speed up the defrost process, place it in a sink filled with cold water (Not Hot!). 
  • Because it can separate during the thawing process, always shake before using
