Save money on milk!  My favorite tip

When I am running close to the expiration date on milk in the refrigerator, I freeze some in ice cube trays.  This saves me because I am not throwing it out and this frozen milk works beautifully in recipes!   I’ll also save 1/2 c in snack size zip top bags, just for cooking.

After the milk-cubes are frozen place them into a ziploc bag and label. Average cube is 1 ½ Tablespoons.

When it comes time to add milk to cooking or baking, thaw frozen milk-cubes and use like fresh milk. When the summer is hot and a milkshake is a perfect cool treat, add the frozen milk-ice-cubes to your homemade milk shakes.

How To Fix Burned Gravy

 

Don’t throw away burned gravy– there is hope to save the burned gravy!  If you are making gravy and accidentally burn it, here’s how to fix the burned gravy.   Pour it into a clean pan and continue cooking on low heat.   To take the “burned” taste from gravy use sugar.  Add a pinch of sugar, stir, and taste.  If the burned taste isn’t gone, try another pinch of sugar.  Avoid over-sugaring it.  The sugar works to cancel out the burned taste in the gravy.  It really works, I know!
