Write date that milk is opened on cap.Everyone knows someone who can't tell when milk has gone past it's prime. Right? If you live with one of these people, I have a remedy for the age-old question: "Honey, does this milk smell bad to you?"


Simply write the date you open the milk on the cap with a permanent marker. Then let them decide for themselves what is an acceptable number of days the container can be open before they turn up their noses.

We bought some milk it doesn't expire until March 18th. It was frozen in our refrigerator since the 3rd of March. It tastes like vanilla, it's 2% milk. Is it safe? I'm 33 weeks pregnant, so I want to be safe.

If you are pregnant then why take a chance? Just throw away the milk. Better safe than sorry.

We buy whole milk on sale and freeze it all the time. Just let it thaw about 1/2 way and keep shaking it to mix the cream and the milk.


It will taste and keep just fine. We've never had any problems at all.

My family has frozen milk for years. When the water in it separates from the cream in it, it acquires a vanilla-like, creamy taste. It is safe though.

Being pregnant I would not take the chance! Better to be safe than sorry. You may be able to handle it but it may not agree with baby!=
