I guess the easy answer is to get used to coffee black lol
Anyone else here a fan of sweetened condensed milk
not for me harry lol we have been buying unsweetened almond milk
good long dates on it but a bit greasy for my liking
will have to get a cow I think lol
Its nectar of the gods, good in tea, fantastic in coffee and adds flare to hot chocolate. Pick some berries, add SCM as an energy boost, spread on bread and butter/biscuits, add to ice cream.....
Almond milk??? good gosh, I thought only the vegetarians used that vial concoction
I'm making a cheese cake for tomorrow, using SCM in the recipe
cant eat cheese cake anymore not since I had my gall bladder removed 22 years ago!!
I like condensed milk, it's great with fruit...instant pudding.
I only buy uht no fresh at all and a I keep some coffee whitener it's creamer.
I buy UHT milk in places like Lidl, a box of 12 at a time. they now use british milk to make it where before it was continental milk they used. Tesco's also use british milk in their uht.
I noticed in Tesco, the only people buying UHT are pensioners, they must miss the days of having sterilised milk delivered LOL
I won't drink UHT milk on principal, the principal being that it tastes awful. Treated myself to a pint of Gold Top full cream milk in Tesco's this morning, makes the best cup of tea a mere mortal can imagine.
the point is from a prepping perspective is that UHT lasts a long time and dosent start to go off until you open the carton, fresh milk will go off fairly quickly especially when the power is off and the fridge dosent work any more.
its surprising how quickly one gets used to the taste, its not that bad and after a day or so one dosent notice it anymore, I started drinking it in 1998 and its all we drink now.
our stock will last us about 8 weeks (then its on to the milk powder), this will cover any smaller SHTF event, anything longer term than 2 months and we'll all be drinking just water anyway!!
I see what you mean LW, but I truly can't stand the taste, the Nido milk tastes far better IMHO. I've made some hot chocolate which is chilling in the fridge...a Lumumba is on the cards for late afternoon
okay, each to their own.
