Powdered Milk

January 17, 2010

I’ve learned a lot about powdered milk in the last couple of weeks. It’s not as gross as you’d think. Really. But this was my reason for buying fresh milk: Costco sells a big box of instant powdered milk, and at $22.90, that’s $2.29 a gallon…more expensive than a gallon of fresh milk! Why on earth would you drink powdered milk if it costs more?! But here’s what I learned: the LDS cannery sells non-instant powdered milk for around $5 for a #10 can. It will make about 5 gallons of milk, so it’s about $1 per gallon. Cheaper than instant powdered milk, and fresh milk! If your family won’t drink powdered milk, here’s an idea (that I’ve heard of a LOT of people doing). Make half a gallon of powdered milk and mix it with half a gallon of fresh milk. Your family will never know, and it will save you money!

And thanks to Big Sis Jennifer for getting me started on my long-term food storage! I have a huge short-term supply, but now I’m learning how to really be prepared!! Food Storage is great!
