How To Freeze Milk -- The Right Way

Image source: Wikimedia

Now that my kids are getting older, my family’s milk consumption has become quite variable. Gone are the days when everyone sat down for a bowl of cereal and milk in the morning. My older ones – including one of my big milk drinkers — are back in college, and my two teens still at home are not big milk drinkers.

As a result, I have had a difficult time having the right amount of fresh milk on hand. Not wanting to either be caught short or to be faced with pouring out spoiled milk, I decided to look into the freezing process.

It turns out that it is quite easy to freeze milk for later use. Here’s how:

You can freeze milk in its original plastic container or paper carton. However, because milk expands when it freezes, you will need to remove an inch or more milk from a full container to allow for this expansion.

You can also freeze milk in freezer-proof glass jars. If you are using narrow-mouth jars, leave 1 1/2-inches of head space.

You can store the milk in your freezer for up to three months.
