Default What should I do?

I've read on here that powdered milk in the #10 can is only good for five years. I have many cases that are at least 8 years old - should I toss is out?? I've never even tried it before, but you guys make it sound pretty good

Open one can and try it in different recipes. I'm sure you will find a gazillion recipes on the internet if you
google "Dry Milk Recipes". view here

If you don't like the milk and won't use it, you could try selling it to someone that will.

Triple Strength 1 1/2 Cups 4 Cups

Liquid Morning Moo's (full strength- 1/2 cup powder to 4 cups water) may be used in your favorite recipes in place of milk.
Double strength makes an excellent substitute for light cream.
Triple strength is considered a concentrate and can be used as such.
Diluted to half strength, liquid Morning Moo's tm maybe used to replace water in recipes, producing a more tender & richer tasting product.
Creamer: Add 1 tsp. dry Morning Moo's tm to 8 oz. coffee to tea.
Buttermilk: Mix 4 Tbsp. buttermilk powder with 1 cup liquid Morning Moo's tm.
Dried regular Morning Moo's tm resembles non-instant, non-fat powdered milk in performance and texture and can be used in recipes as a substitute for an equal volume.
Note: Since Morning Moo's tm has a whey base, it has a shortening effect on dough, so you can cut back on the use of shortening.
Thank you! I don't know why I could not find it...

Depending on how it was stored, it could be good for much longer. If it was in a dry, cool basement area, it is probably ok. I have used some that is older than that. Also, if there are oxy packs in the can to keep the oxygen out, that is another good thing. Check out the new long term storage dates at www.providentliving.org .

I just paid $13.xx at Sam's for 4.4 lbs. I don't know it that is a very good deal, but I needed some right then.

After you've used some, will you post if you like the taste? In cooking, I always used powdered milk. Some taste better in sauces and soups, etc. Does anyone else think this or I am just crazy?

Default when powdered milk is bad

How can you tell if the powdered milk is bad - taste, smell? Also anyone tried to do anything with it if its bad - fed it to animals (chickens, cows) with good results?
