I got a free gallon of milk w purchase of three boxes of cereal (had coupons on the cereal, too: ) We don't use much milk, so now the last quart or so is turning sour. I hate to throw it out. I have just made some cinnamon biscuits, but that only used 2/3 cup. Is there some way to salvage/use it up without doing a marathon baking session?
Check out this web site for LOTS of recipes using sour milk: http://www.cooks.com/rec/story/121/ I'd make pancakes or waffles with sour milk and have a stockpile of them in the freezer for quick breakfasts.
1. If you don't easily use a gallon of milk, divide it into user-friendly amounts and freeze it.
2. Make sure you store milk in the coldest part of your refrigerator, that's normally NOT the door.
3. Make sure your refrigerator is 40° F or colder. Warm refrigerators are a common cause of milk souring.
4. Don't let your milk sit out at room temperature for any length of time. The more often you do allow it to warm, the quicker it will sour.
5. Don't mix a small portion of an old container of milk in with a new container. That's a sure way for it to sour quickly.
