Milk gone bad?

got some sour milk? Don't throw it out - USE IT!!

Use it in all kinds of baking - how many times do you "make" sour milk or buttermilk - the old vinegar/lemon juice in fresh milk trick?

When your milk starts to go - just bake something and don't let it go to waste.

Remember in general expiration dates are not - "CAN'T EAT ANYMORE" dates.

expiration dates are for quality purposes not safety purposes.

Eggs last a LONG time in the fridge - Other countries don't even refrigerate their eggs, they are room temp on the aisle with bread.

One study claims that a 1/4 of all food purchased in the US is thrown out. Reduce that percentage in your house:

  • Don't be confined by your menu-planning.
  • cook based on what you have on hand that needs to be used first.
  • remember it won't kill you to overlook the expiration date once in a while.
  • a 'sell-by' date is NOT an expiration date.
Excellent article on the subject - The Joy and Wisdom of eating past the expiration date.
