Have you ever used expired milk to make something?

I have never used expired milk to make anything. I think it gross and nasty to make something with expired milk. I don't see the point because what ever you making will just end up tasting funny. It might even make people sick by eating what ever it was you served them. I would never do that to someone. If I had expired milk I would go to the store and buy some up to date milk and them make my food. I would not be stupid or lazy and not go pick good milk up from the store. You have to think of what side effect expired milk could do to you or anyone else!

I use the expired milk to water my flowers,it's said that's good for them.My flowers are very well now and maybe you can have a try.Anyway,if we can use them in a different way,it's better than just to throw them away.

scones - sour milk is perfect for making scones
Sour milk is actually wonderful for backing as there is extra lactic acid in it which acts as a raising agent. I always keep milk that is going of for making scones

I have never used expired milk to make anything. Once it reaches expiration date, I simply throw it away. It is so easy to make yourself or others ill by using milk that was not good anymore. It's just not worth it.

Expired milk is usually disposed off in our home. I don't think we can actually do anything with expired milk at all. If consumed it can cause a lot of problems, food poisoning, diarrhea and similar stomach related issues i guess.

i have not tried using expired milk for any purpose. but some of my friends did, they used an expired milk for bathing. Some beauty experts recommend usage of milk when taking a bath to make your skin smoother and silkier. I think this practice was done even during the time of Cleopatra. So next time you milk expires in your fridge, try using it when you take a bath.

expired milk is dangerous to health espescially to children.But your people i guess it depends on your stomach .Haha.Usually expired milk are not waste i feed to my pets like dogs and cats.They welcome it,usually mix with expired corn flakes or just plain drink it.Those sour milk are most dangerious some of them made other edible foods like curd and such.I think those are fermented under clean environment using controlled yis,it is different from the exposed non treated expired milk which is dangerous.

Well as the name goes 'expired' means something that is already history so i don't think it can be used for anything.It'd be rather stupid of us even doing so.Personally i never did anything else with bad milk other then throwing that crap out.

It is very harmful to drink the expired milk. As the protein will contain many virus after the milk expired. If you really don't want to waste the expired milk, you can use it to wash your face or take a bath:) But you can't drink it anyway because it is bad for your health. I love China

hi tucker, i haven't actually find myself having expired milk.i always see to it that i buy those milk with really far away expiration dates,to make sure that i would be more careful when combining it with others and make a spoil of food.time and money and effort will be all wasted. i think if i'd be having such expired milk,i would try to clean my body with it or just as they said,pour it to plants to make them grow heathier. what about you? do you know other benefits of expired milk?

No, I have never used expired milk to make anything, and I never would. But I have seen people make stuff with expired milk. Once I had some ....I can't remember what it was that I ate, but it tasted odd, so I said what kind of milk did you use in this? It tastes different. They said regular milk. I looked at the milk and it was expired. When I told them the milk was expired they looked at me like I was stupid, and said that you couldn't drink expired milk, but it was alright to cook with. I said you're gross.

In my line of work, there is no such expired milk as long as we put them in a freezer. Sometimes, we also use it by making chocolate milk. As long as it does not smell nasty and as long as it doesn't look like as it is in a yoghurt-like form, we consume it. I'm sure that there's still some good use out from it, those who know how to process it.

tuckersheri the best way is to taste the milk if its curdled you will know with the teeniest taste. sometimes milk can actually spoil before the expiration date, and sometimes its still good after the date for a day or two. smell and taste that willtell you if its safe or not.if it is just on the date its still safe but a day or two later is too late. I have used yogurt on the day it expired and it did not harm me at all.

Are you talking actually spoiled or just over the experation date? I have had milk a day after the experation date that was still perfectly good. But if it smells bad at all it goes down the drain. That rarely happens at my house. We go through nearly a gallon of milk a day here, so usually all of our milk is consumed way before it even comes close to spoiling, but no I would not use spoiled milk to make anything.

I never use expired milk to make other food. In my view, food is very important to our health. Expired milk may be still fit to drink, but nobody could guarantee its quality. If I use it to make food in order not to throw it, the outcome may be that I fall ill and pay high medical fees. So everybody should responsible for his or her own health.

Hi tuckersheri, my mom never cared whether the milk was expired as long as they were still fresh with delicious savor. She would dump newly bought milk straight away into the dustbin if she got the awful smell which showed that it had turned bad, though it's not expired yet. If she got considerable time surely she would ask for compensation. She did get stuffs newly bought replaced from the hypermarket a couple of time, when she found the stuffs with awful smell and were not fresh enough to eat. We were told that certain stuffs with expired date are still could be consumed safely if there are yet in good condition. I did read news about people with low income always waiting at the back doorway of some hypermarkets to collect expired stuffs dumping out. Some need to pay lower price to get their desirable items. Happy posting

No, I've never used expire milk. If it's expired, then it's expired. Most likely you would just get food posioning from drinking a large dosage of expired milk. Stick your milk in a freezer or refrigerator and keep it cool.

There is a difference between expired milk and sour or curdled milk. If milk is past the expiration date on the container it is not necessarily bad. It can be perfectly fine, but they do not want to keep it longer than that in the store, because they don't want to risk selling spoiled milk to customers. Similarly, if the date on the milk is not past its expiration that does not ensure that the milk is good. We bought two gallons of milk from the store last summer, and when we got home we found they were both spoiled, even though they were not close to their expiration date. It turned out that there was something wrong with the cooler, and the store did not realize it until we brought the milk back to the store. The store thanked us for bringing the spoiled milk to their attention, and replaced the two gallons with new ones from the back storage container, which was working just fine.

I have used an expired milk ingredient to make a cake before. But I tried to smell it first to make sure it was okay. If it was sour then I wouldn't even bother to use it. I don't want to make my friends or family members sick by eating stuff I made with really bad milk. I wouldn't want that on my conscious.
