    Default Long Life Milk

    We keep 6 cartons of long life milk in the emergency box. Now they are reaching sell-by-date and need to be use asap...

    Any idea what we can use for without going waste???
    My OH and MIL refused to have it in their tea or breakfast while i am on dairy-free diet

    What sort of packaging is it? If it is plastic or cardboard then you could freeze it, but obviously you can't freeze cans as they'll explode! If you do freeze it make sure there is room for the cartons to expand - my husband packed a load of milk into the freezer last week, and forgot that it would expand and couldn't get it out later.

    If it's a nice full fat milk - pudding!

    How about making rice puddings and lots of plain white sauces and then freezing ?

    Stole these off another website I use... they had a fudge recipe thread as they were doing home made xmas pressies...

    Recipe 1

    Fudge
    1 C sugar
    125 gm butter
    C milk
    2 T cocoa
    1 T golden syrup (optional)
    2 C icing sugar
    1 t vanilla essence

    Melt butter and mix everything together except icing sugar, bring to the boil and boil for 4 minutes, you can give it a couple of stirs but it isn't necessary. You don't need to monitor temperature.

    Remove from heat, mix in icing sugar and vanilla essence. It gets pretty thick so you will need to give it a really good mix.

    Pour into buttered tray. About a 23cm square or simlar will do it. You might have to use a spatula to scrape some of it out.

    Cut while still warm. Makes it a lot easier to get out if you do that.

    Recipe 2

    Russian Fudge is made in the microwave.
    INGREDIENTS:
    3 cups sugar
    1/2 of 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
    4 ounces (125 grams) butter
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 cup milk
    1 tablespoon golden syrup
    pinch salt
    1 cup chopped and lightly toasted nuts (optional)
    PREPARATION:
    Place all ingredients except nuts in a very large microwavable bowl. Stir to mix & cook on high for 15 to 17 minutes stirring well every 3 minutes.
    Remove from oven and beat until thick, approx, 5 minutes. Add nuts if using and pour into a greased tin, and cut when set. I line my tin with tinfoil and then spray the tinfoil with a light coating of oil spray...stops it sticking to both the tin and the tinfoil.

    To make it into chocolate fudge add 6 ounces chocolate chips when adding nuts.

    As they're cardboard and before their sell by date it's fine to freeze them.

    I've used this recipe for fudge before: http://uktv.co.uk/food/recipe/aid/513459 (You can leave out the vanilla flavouring if you just want plain fudge).
