Guest Post: How to Freeze Milk & Eggs

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

Are you having fun learning things from my fellow blogging friends?  These articles share such great information!  One thing I know I have wanted to do was know how to freeze foods that I find on sale.  Rarely is milk on sale.  Recently, it was on sale for an AMAZING price and with my coupons I was paying around $1.50 a gallon.  I wanted so badly to “stockpile” my milk, but didn’t know how.  I wish I read this article before I went shopping.   Melissa at Stockpiling Moms shares how to freeze milk and eggs…who’d have thought!

Eggs can be frozen for up to one year. Don’t freeze eggs in the shell, remove them from the shells and mix them well before freezing. After mixing well pour them into an ice cube tray and cover with saran wrap. They can be placed in a freezer safe container after frozen. They should be thawed in the refrigerator the day before you plan to use them for best results.

Milk can be frozen however it may separate when thawed. Frozen milk is excellent for cooking and can be used for drinking but may need to be shaken. Freeze milk by removing some of the milk (1 ½ cups) per gallon so when the jug expands it doesn’t overflow. It can be frozen for 1 month. For best results thaw in the refrigerator and shake well before using.

These are two methods to stretch your family budget. Do you have any tips to share?

Melissa taught Family and Consumer Science (Home Economics) on the high school level for 11 years before becoming a mom. In June 2005 after her son came home from Guatemala, she made the decision to leave her career and become a SAHM. In order to achieve this goal and live on one income, her family had to make some drastic changes in their lifestyle.  Her hope is through, she will be able to help others join her on the journey to frugal living.

    I only freeze 1/2 gallons. Gallons take FOREVER to thaw.

    I have not found a need to pour off any milk to allow for expansion. The “indents” in the side of the milk allow plenty of room for expansion. Shake thoroughly prior to serving….it tastes fine.
