FREEZING BAGS OF MILK > SEEKING INSTRUCTIONS/ADVICE PLEASE

You are welcome

And you won't regret the emergency milk at your fingertips.

With 21st century ultra pasteurized and homogenized the shaking is way less than Asia of 25 years ago.

FREEZING BAGS OF MILK > SEEKING INSTRUCTIONS/ADVICE PLEASE

yes you can freeze milk

with caveats when you thaw

skim,shake..1% shake more..2% shake even more and whole (4%) shake a lot

I did many years in Asia long ago,where the milk entered the country frozen and then repackaged (parmalatpak).If you didn't shake the living daylights out of it the product was "flinty textured".

AMEN, OK
two to five years ago any specifics in a reply:example cookware and regional supply and service that even remotely smelled of (AND I DO MEAN REMOTE),whiffed of favoritism,....were pulled,what BS.
If someone posts an honest answer,with caveats about multiple sources ,who and where to try for ? and it is still pulled.What are the guidelines?
I need help putting a target on the shill.Having just looked up to the right on my on the screen,I have all cookies blocked and five advertisements.This must be an issue for our host as more and more of us operate this way.
Yet with all the discourse on this topic/thread I have not seen one iota of change to posting guidelines or the faq.
Odd at best.

Greetings LindaWhit

This entire AgLocal thread issue is worse than blatant.

Tomorrow the fast food or supermarket chain,(fill in any here)domestic or foreign introduces the ????

All organic,biodynamic meat lovers,vegan meal...at 2usd...and splashes it out here on CH,and the post lives.
blatant advertising is perhaps an understatement...

Here on CH I don't even want to think about who is an honest purveyor or not.Or who eats the mistakes if the product sucks etc.
But now we have a blatant "endorsement" of AgLocal on the boards. go figure

I am presuming or hoping this was written by your joke writer.

I am an oldie here at CH,still have 2 of the very old original tshirts...one never washed or worn.

One day later no clear answer,waffle or weasel words are not the same as a clear answer.

Yet you were so very very careful to pad around the ???
and never mention AgLocal.

boy with a joke writer and lawyer...bravo

my real response will be below to LindaWhit and jackiecat

Perhaps as interesting to me as an answer will be how long it is before a clear and simple "yes or no" answer
appears from CH.

About 24 hours ago PatSully stated they are still trying to work with AgLocal and invited them to join the conversation (this thread?).

I know better than to type my real 2cents,but much of the logic applied by CH here is perforated.

Wasabi: Why invest in 'the hardest plant to grow'?

Sausage casings

I have used the product.The first thing I have to offer is how very fragile it is.Both to handle,stuff and in cooking.

Availability?? easy in the EU and the formula is now in the US.
http://www.meatprocessingproducts.com

as well as two other sources

I have purchased and used it in Italy,France,Canada and the US.

I would add before anyone lifts a stink about Kosher.
All of the sources claim,VEGAN,VEGETARIAN,HALAL and KOSHER,and buried at the end,without exception is a disclaimer,"qualifies KOSHER,not KOSHER certified.
If it is certified it would be recently,less than two months.

What Do You Clean Food Pantry/Cabinet Interiors With?

Likely not.
Where I have finished wood/hardwood it's extra diluted Murphy's or water only and wipe dry.If there something harder to get off I may resort to GooGone and get it off ASAP.

What Do You Clean Food Pantry/Cabinet Interiors With?

Mostly plain water.If that isn't up to the task I use Murphy's Oil soap or Cinch,both will take care of odors.I don't like the smell of either so I wipe again with plain water.
Old,stale odors will likely be solved with a good wipe and air out in cabinets you go in and out of a lot.Not so easy when it's two antique corner cabinets you buy,not opened so much because they were only used for silver and dolls for forty years.

Sushi in N. Bethesda/Rockville?

Agree on the Niwano Hana.

With OP not wanting downtown Bethesda or Rockville with the time and hassle required just to park and poof,lunch hour gone
the list is ? ,but priced that way also.

Sushi in N. Bethesda/Rockville?

Here are four on the pike between White Flint and Rockville without the parking headaches of downtown Bethesda or Rockville.

Temari Cafe 301-340-7720
1043 Rockville Pike

Hinode Restaurant 301-816-2190
134 Congressional Lane (back corner of Congressional Plaza)
Niwano Hana 301-294-0553
887 Rockville Pike

Sushi House 301-309-0043
1331 Rockville PIke

All OK to quite good and priced that way,not great.Most of the neutral,middle ground reviews are accurate.

Ever take anything but wine or beer to a BYOB?

We have a short list of BYOB in Pa we like enough to frequent
from DC and frequently see ABV above 18% being served near us.

Where can I buy napa cabbage and wonton wrappers in NW DC?

I second Bacardi 1

I am NW DC into Montgomery Co and I don't think there is a grocery store that doesn't carry both.

Wild Game [moved from Site Talk]

No resale of wild harvest cervids (deer family) is "North American" law by collaborative agreement,US and Canada.

Reason ...CWD chronic wasting disease of cervids Elk,White Tail Deer ,Mule Deer ,Moose diagnosed so far.I am not certain the status Caribou or Mule Deer sub-species Sitka and Black Tail.
CWD ,transmissible neurological disease,a TSE transmissible spongiform encephalopathy .....perhaps another Prion

What kind of cheese goes with smoked trout?

perhaps my favorite is mozzarella di bufala / fresh buffalo mozzarella
most mild,rich and creamy cheeses work well with smoked trout without competing.

Perhaps you would do well and or better by adding this post to the CHEESE BOARD

For me your corn bread alone says,exchange it.You were gifted a lovely pan that would be my second choice to cast iron.

costco stores sell liquor in maryland?

They not only have beer and wine,it's a large department,not a step child.

Lamb Front (shoulder, shank and some ribs) in one big piece... Roast? Braise?

That was sort of my take above after I saw the picture.

Replicating outdoor grill results on a regular range

The broiler,next would be a burner top grill pan,cast iron.

Modern ceramic broilers really are amazing as are some of the stove top grill pans, if you have the btu's and exhaust.Retiring my Vulcan w/salamandre to the out side kitchen has worked out fine,no regrets in vile weather.
