I know i can freeze milk but do i have to poor any off the top???


I just got on WIC and i get a boat load of milk.. And since i'm trying to only go shopping once a month i don't want to have to make tons of trips to the store to use the vouchers... So i'm hoping i can just drop them in the freezer and get them out when i need them...

we use whole milk and 1/2% if that makes a difference???


Edit: I know this has been asked before but i can't find the thread!!! Sorry.

Yes, pour an inch or two off the top because it'll expand when it freezes.

I don't think I've ever had thawed milk before. It should taste the same. *shrugs*

Actually it is not necessary to empty any. We used to freeze milk all the time when I was younger and yes it expands some but it goes back once it thaws.

I pour some off when I freeze it because I don't want exploding milk bombs all over the place. I've done that once, and I do not want to clean out the freezer like that ever again. Ick.

I do not suggest freezing whole milk, though ... you can try it and see what you think. It may just be in aversion to whole milk in general, but I think it's weird (due to the high fat content) after it's been frozen. It could just be me. Try one gallon first, and then you'll know whether it'll work or not.

Thawing takes about a full day in the fridge, so plan ahead if you're running low and need to pull one out for the next day.

Yeah, if you freeze/thaw it, you'll need to shake it up REALLY well to mix the fat back in (it separates when you freeze it). It will still leave the milk a bit "pulpy". We never poured any off and never had a problem.
