I have almost a gallon of sour milk. What can I do with it other than throw it away? Can I make something with it?
Let it sit at room temperature until it curdles (or "clabbers"). Line a large bowl with about 4 layers of cheese cloth and pour the sour milk into the bowl. Bring up corners and tie the gloppy mess securely by winding sturdy string around it several times. Suspend it and let it drain over the bowl overnight and in the morning, you will have cottage cheese. As for the liquid part, I suppose you could use it in soup or gravy or else mix it with dry dog or cat food. (07/22/2005)
I've used it in biscuits. It's about the same as adding buttermilk and doesn't affect the taste. Now some may say it's not HEALTHY. I ain't dead yet! (07/22/2005)
I would freeze it in small containers in the amounts that my recipes call for, such as butter tubs. Use it in baking; biscuits, pancakes, etc. (07/22/2005)
I have also made biscuits, pancakes, and bread pudding,
I have some friends who grow roses (beautiful, I might add) and they give them milk every couple of months, so why not use the sour milk. All the nutrients are still there. Now all your rose growers, this is just something a friend does so I don't know myself. I can kill an artificial plan, if you know what I mean. (07/23/2005)
Use in recipes calling for buttermilk. (07/23/2005)

Pour it in the garden, pour it in your compost pile (you do have one, don't you ) :-) Use it to water your plants outside and roses love it ! (07/24/2005)
If you have a septic tank, pour it down the toilet. The enzymes in the milk will help clean your septic tank. It helps. (07/25/2005)
Pour the sour milk into the soil of your plants. (08/16/2005)
Milk is supposed to be good 7 days past the sell-by date. I just returned some sour milk to the store where I purchased it and got a free replacement gallon even though it had expired 3 days earlier. (10/31/2005)
Sour milk makes the nicest scones (biscuits for those who are American). You can also use yogurt or sour yogurt (05/23/2006)
