So I had a half gallon of milk that I bought weeks ago and never opened. It was 5 days past the expiration and I hated the idea of tossing a whole half gallon, especially since I'm broke until Monday. So I looked up if there was anything to make with expired milk. I found that I wasn't so crazy and that some recipes call for expired milk. So I confidently attempted paneer.

While I didn't salt enough, it is tasty. I just sprinkle sea salt on top and call it a day. I strained it through a tank top so it has this interesting ribbed design to it that reminds me of a shell.

So I made paneer with expired milk.

And I can feel some of my fellow curlies making SERIOUS note of me and my ways. No showers, expired milk cheese, wtf is up with me! Hehe

I'm not a technical cooker.

The recipe I followed was:

1/2 gallon milk

Put it in a big pot and bring to a boil over med heat. I stirred occasionally. Once it finally started boiling I lowered the heat to low and added the first of four (the recipe called for 3, but it didn't clot completely so I ended up adding the fourth) tablespoons of white distilled vinegar. I stirred them in and the removed from heat. I let it sit for 10 minutes and then I strained the clotted business (not the best of looks) through a sieve lined with a tank top. I then pressed it for about 10 minutes still in the sieve to get rid of as much water as I could.

I should have added the salt before I started the closed tank top straining.

Then I ate.

I loosely followed these two videos and sort of the yahoo answers. I definitely suggest bearing through the second video. It filled in the extra blanks I had.

YouTube

YouTube

How do you make cheese out of expired milk? - Yahoo! Answers

AAAANNNNNNDDDDDD...... Saria might have fainted somewhere feeling the force if horrible site to use for making cheese.

I figured: I'm working with something that I would be throwing away, so if it works; great. If not, not. If I didn't feel comfortable with the end result I'd jump ship.

But it turned out very well if I do say so myself.

And I saved and froze the whey for anything I may need.

Did I mention that I'm proud of myself?

No, it doesn't have to spoiled!

Hehe...... I think it's regular milk in the second video,

My personal focus was on what the **** to do with my expired milk.

If I couldn't make something out of it I was going to clean with it. It IS good for that isn't it? I didn't make it that far in my research as I came along some cheese...

I might try some bread this week.

SO. EXCITED.

Thelio, thanks for the idea to do stuff like this. I'm going to try to only make homemade mayo from now on too.

I did it, Minxy!!!! Sososososo easy! I used skim milk, and no clue how much a gallon was, so used one bag (what I had on hand) and just added a little vinegar at a time till it separated. We has paneer masala for dinner that night!

Thanks again, will definitely do it again!
