Freeze Milk In Ice Cube Bags

Post by aardvaark »

I just saw this on Facebook and thought what a good idea for freezing milk. You only need to use one cube at a time to put in your tea instead of freezing a whole bottle and having to defrost and use the whole lot.

I have just sent away for some on Ebay - £1.85 for 280!

That seems a great idea Aardy. Couldn't get into the link. Could you freeze them in the freezer cube trays?

Yes, any small container would be great. Just so as not have to defrost a whole bottle. :D

Sorry about the link. I'll take a photo tomorrow myself and show you.

I always have a 2 pint or what ever in liters, in the freezer and if needed leave on draining board over night and it is thawed ok.

two pints would be too much for me to use before it went off. I*do save my 1 pint containers when empty and separate them before freezing them if I can only buy 2 pint containers.

Are you still using 'pints' ?
Civilisation is a veneer, easily soluble in alcohol.

Yes and no !
Pints of milk are sold as 568 mililitres. I use 4 pints a week, but the bottle says it's 2272 mililitres :err:
They are also sold in litres which I suspect many people mistake for 2 pints but, of course, they are only a pint and three quarters.

Sizes of canned beer are even more confusing, They are sold in 440 ml, 500 ml, and 568ml
The last two are easily understood, i.e ½ litre and 1pint but why 440ml ? I can't find any rational explanation for that size !
Don't quit, never give up !

Here are my handy cup of tea sized portions of milk! I don't care what size they are, I only have to cut one off and drop it in my cup. Minus the plastic, of course!

It's because manufacturers reduce sizes of products whilst still charging for the previous size. It's a devious way of profiteering.

I don't put milk or sugar in tea or coffee, I drink both black and unsweetened, that way you get the full taste, (bitter drinks are more refreshing, that's why beer is popular ;) )
A secondary benefit is, if I am slow to drink it I can still be consumed when it goes cold. (it's similar to iced tea or coffee)
It's the milk in it that makes cold tea yukky
