Soured Milk? Drink it!
Just in case you don't read A Mom, Money, and More, you should read her latest post. Before you go, let me say, I drink milk that is soured. I put chocolate in it and cannot taste it at all.
You think soured milk is dangerous? What do you think buttermilk and other thick dairy products are? I never gave soured milk to my children nor would I give it to my grandchildren or any child. I know it is safe, but parents might not believe that.
I make buttermilk by leaving milk on the counter for 24 hours. I have never died. Recipe: into a quart jar put 3 cups of milk and one cup of buttermilk, stir, cover with cloth, let sit 24 hours, stir, drink. I do have to warn you that some store-bought buttermilk will not make thick buttermilk.
While I try not to waste food, not being able to bend easily or without pain causes me to waste more than I like, still not much. Usually, the chicken gets the waste, so I get it back in eggs.
Even raw chicken that smells gross is washed and used around here. The bacteria on the surface is the gross, rotten smell you perceive. Run cold water over the chicken while you turn it and rub it, use vinegar and water for a quick soak. I am 100% sure it is okay!
Sonya Ann gives a link to a great article about expiration dates, "best if used by", etc. Go HERE to find her blog and the link to the food waste chart.
Do you waste milk that smells sour? Do you drink it with chocolate or cook with it?What are your thoughts on food waste at your house?
