Freezing milk – you should pay attention to this
Only freeze milk if it has not expired. Tip: It is best to note on the package when you freeze the milk.
- Since milk expands slightly in the freezer, the container should not be completely full. Otherwise, there is a risk that glass bottles will burst.
- Frozen milk will keep for two to three months. After that, it loses flavor and spoils over time.
Thaw frozen milk again – that’s how it works
If you want to defrost the milk, this is best done directly in the refrigerator. Depending on the quantity, this can take a whole day.
- If you need it faster, place the milk carton or container in a container of cold water. This will speed up the process by several hours.
- The milk must be thawed slowly and gently. Never use warm water, the microwave, or direct sunlight.
- Shake the milk vigorously before drinking to mix the fat back into the rest of the ingredients.
- The thawed milk often tastes a little waterier or can appear a little lumpy due to the separation of the fat. That is normal. However, you should not store thawed milk for more than five days. Refreezing is also not recommended.
