Rotating Food Storage - Powdered Milk

Many families go through milk by the gallon and ours is pretty close. I think we average just under a gallon per day. In order to keep up with this demand, and have adequate food storage, we use powdered milk for everything.

Storage


Powdered milk stored under normal conditions only keeps it's nutritional value for about 1-2 years. Canning the milk can increase the shelf-life significantly when done right. If milk is stored properly, in a cool, dry place at temperatures 75 degrees F or lower, you may be able to store it for up to 20 years.

But my kids won't drink it


If you can't totally replace your need for fresh milk then you can mix fresh and powdered milk 50/50 or you could just use powdered milk when you're cooking. I notice very little difference in taste between eating a bowl of sugar-o-s with fresh or powdered milk. A tall glass of fresh milk does taste different but if you get a decent quality powdered milk it's not too bad. You could also add chocolate powder to help make it more palatable. Storing milk can be great for food storage needs and if you can find a way to use and rotate it you'll save money and your bill for fresh milk will go down as well.
