• Milk should be kept in the fridge. It can be frozen, but it will expand on freezing, so make sure the packaging hasn’t ruptured before defrosting it in the fridge for 24 hours.

  • If milk starts to go sour, salvage it for use in cake mixtures and scones.

  • Sour milk also makes a good substitute for buttermilk in recipes which require it and makes your scones taste fab!

  • Add richness and moisture to bread dough and other baked goods by replacing the water with fresh milk.

  • Make a richer and more nutritious hot chocolate from a powdered mix by replacing the water with milk.

  • Add milk to homemade soups for extra flavour and nutrition. Reduce the amount of water or broth called for by up to half and replace it with milk, adding it at the end of cooking (make sure you don’t let the soup boil).
