Whether it's a public health concern or a massive storm, people are always heading to the grocery store to stock up on the life essentials like bread and milk. Now people are wondering, what can you do if you want to stock up on milk but are worried that it may expire before you use it. The answer is simple, like other foods you can freeze it according to the American Dairy Association. Below are tips for Freezing Milk. [sc name="trending-articles"]
- Make sure you have space you have in your freezer. If you do not have the space for a number of large gallons, consider stocking up on quarts or half gallons.
- Before storing, drink a little first. When milk is frozen, like any other liquid it expands. So, drink just a bit from each container, leaving just a bit of room for the milk to expand safely when it freezes over. The suggestion is one to two inches from the top of each container.
- When ready to drink your frozen milk, make sure to thaw it in a refrigerator, not at room temperature.
- After the milk has thawed, give it a good shake before drinking.
