Check the Date When Buying Dairy

When buying dairy at the grocery store, be sure to check the "use by" or "sell buy" date on the packaging. If the date is not to your liking, grab a carton of milk from the back of shelf.

The same goes for any dairy products. There is no sense is buying products that will go bad before you can use them.

Once in a while, the supermarket will mark milk down if they have a lot with a date that is about to expire. Milk can be frozen with no bad effects. I once bought 5 gallons for 70% off because the expiration date was the following day. I opened each one and poured half a cup into a container, replaced the lid and put it in my freezer. It will expand as it freezes, so you have to pour a little out, but you can use it right away, so there is no waste. Let it thaw in the refrigerator for about 24 hours, and it is good as fresh. You cannot tell that it was ever frozen.

I've found my cottage cheese pushed to the back of the fridge a few times, out of date by then. I used to toss it in the trash, but after a while, what I do now is, pour it in a colander and rinse the soured liquids off, drain well and use in cottage cheese salad or how ever anyhow. It tastes alright. It makes me sick to think of how many containers I've thrown in the trash in the past, just because it was "out of date".

Also, out of date sour cream can still be used in recipes and still tastes fine.

Also, out of date milk can still be used if it tastes alright, but don't use in a recipe if its soured or clabbered already. About the only thing then it's good for is the neighborhood cat.
