Add Salt To Keep Milk Fresh Longer

If you are a bachelor, consider this: Buy a 4 liter milk jug instead of a 2 liter milk jug. Get your money's worth. When you open it, put a pinch of salt in it then shake. Your milk will last 2 weeks past the expired date. Take care.

If kept at a temperature of 40 degrees F (4.4 C), milk will typically last for a week beyond the expiration without the addition of salt. Also note that the higher the fat content, the longer it will keep.

Milk can be frozen. It's really good when there are still a few ice crystals in it. Be sure to thaw it in the refrigerator.
