Well, here I am with a simple yet effective solution / call it a tip to store milk for further usage and cut down on wastage.
How to store Milk:
Freeze it! Yes, you heard it right. Just put them in the freezer and whenever you are back/ feel like using it, take the packet out and drop it a vessel of water. Once the milk defrosts, it's ready to be used. You can do the same to boil the milk.
How to use the frozen milk.
- Take the frozen milk out.
- Cut open the cover into a vessel and add little water.
- Set the stove on low flame and let the milk to boil.
The packet displayed in the pictures above was to be used by 5th April but then I took a vacation and used it once I came back. Its 15th of April and the milk is still good.
