I’m kind of obsessed with putting things in ice cube trays. Orange Juice, Chicken Broth, Cream…..I just love the handy little size of ice cubes and it helps me preserve certain foods longer to use them in the future instead of letting them go to waste in my fridge.
So my latest experiment in my ice cube trays has been one I should have thought about a long time ago. Milk! We buy milk only once every 2 weeks (because we buy raw milk and get it straight from the farm)
Milk is very easy to freeze. Just pour into your ice cubes trays, freeze for a few hours and then store in a freezer bag. Each ice cube is the equivalent of 2 Tablespoons. So for recipes you need:
2 Milk Cubes = 1/4 c. milk
4 Milk Cubes = 1/2 c. milk
6 Milk Cubes = 3/4 c. milk
8 Milk Cubes = 1 c. milk
Frozen milk can pretty much be used the same as fresh milk in any recipe.
