Storing Fish in Milk Cartons

While growing up in an area with lakes and rivers all around, my family did a lot of fishing. All my family would save all their empty 1/2 gallon milk cartons. Wash them and put them up to dry, and then give them to the fishermen of the family. When the fresh catches of the day were scaled, cleaned and ready for the refrigerator or freezer. The fish were put in a clean, dry milk carton with some salt water.


The top of the carton closed as you would if it had milk in it, then folded down. This way the fish smell didn't go into the refrigerator with all the other foods. If put in the freezer, you put enough salt water in to cover the fish but also enough room to allow the carton to expand. By using the milk cartons, it freed up other freezer containers for garden produce or leftovers.

I believe this is the coated cardboard milk containers, not the plastic milk jugs. (06/16/2005)
