Sour Milk- Recipes, anyone?
« on: May 02, 2007, 05:07:06 AM »
We have over a gallon of cow milk (the real, non-homogenized stuff, straight from the cow :)) that went sour... it's not thick yet, just turned. Anyone have any recipes or anything we can use it with? I'd really hate to throw it away...

How old was the milk? Our raw fresh cow's milk keeps almost 2 weeks in fridge.

SOUR MILK PANCAKES   

1 egg
1 c. sour milk or buttermilk
1 tbsp. salad oil
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. flour

Put all ingredients into a blender container. Cover and process at mix until well blended. Bake on a lightly greased griddle until nicely browned. Yield: 16 (3") pancakes.

I've frozen mine in 1 or 2 cup containers so I can use it when needed. That way I don't feel a need to hurry, but can use it as the need comes up.

I splurged and bought fresh raw cow's milk just under a week ago, just to try it out (we won't be buying it so long as we live here, because prices start at $10/gal)...and it's already sour. At least, sour enough that my hubby, die-hard milk drinker that he is, doesn't want to drink it. From my reading, I thought that raw milk sours, but doesn't go rancid, so it's not actually bad. What can I do with it? Is this the sort of thing I could make yoghurt from? Is it bad?

Bump!  ;D

I make pancakes w/ sour milk already...any other uses?  I'll freeze it, but would rather not...it's starting to separate, and I keep adding "fresher" sour milk to it...any tips?  I don't use whey so much or the curds...I welcome any tips!

I've tried making yogurt w/ it and didn't care for it...I have a question on the kefir thread lingering about using it for kefir...

You might try using it instead of buttermilk for biscuits.  Jump on over to the cheese making thread and make some spiced, soft cheese by heating it and adding a little acv.  We like using sour milk to make potato soup.

My kids get excited when we get sour milk! They know that pancakes are first on the list, then biscuits, then any baked item that calls for milk! Muffins, waffles, the topping of chicken pot pie, banana cake, etc. I just bake it all up. Makes nice fluffy goodies.

Thanks for the suggestions!  I'm making up extra pancakes to freeze tomorrow.  We're GF, so I'm still working on bakery and the like, but will remember for when I get better at muffins, breads, biscuits...

Is there a point when I can't use it anymore in these suggestions?  Like when it's separated?

Been using sour milk in potato soup and biscuits--YUM!

Do you think it'd be fine in puddings?

I'd think it might be a bit too strong tasting for that. However, it goes great in slow cooking grains because of the whey content. What about cooking some of it into your vegtables? Trying it in your next batch of bread might taste good too...just some ideas off the top of my head :)

Later:

For the adventurous, what about homemade sour cream?
