Dry Milk: The Secret

I listened to all the usual hints about dry milk (add sugar, make it with icewater, add a drop of vanilla, use a blender, stir in Bosco, etc.) until a home ec teacher clued me in. "Protein is reluctant to combine with water," she explained. "It takes about three hours for freshly mixed dry milk to combine thoroughly with water." Even though I don't always have refrigeration, I find this three-hour rule important in achieving the right texture.

Re: Dry Milk: The Secret

I mix with very small amt of warm water first. After the paste is smooth I gradually add more water.

Re: Dry Milk: The Secret

another secret,apart from using warm water to mix into a paste,which works well is to double the quantity of powder that you would use to make milk,then add a tsp of yogurt, mix well then let it stand at room temp over night,pour off whey in the morning.
voila! you have perfect yogurt for brekky.

remember to save a little to mix in for the next batch...........

Or, just make the dry milk with the last of the Parmalat or Lait Entier as part of the liquid. Then it is close to real.

Nido works fine without the need for any special tricks, just use cold water and Nido in a bottle as a shaker.

I had dry milk a little when I was a kid because family didn't have a lot of $$. Several years ago I was in Colombia and tried what they had and it was a lot better than what I had as a kid. I put the mix and milk in a sealed bowl and shook it until it looked well mixed. Worked out pretty good. I would just add cereal and had my breakfast.

Re: Dry Milk: The Secret

Dan, my guess is that your mom did what any thrifty mom would do: used less dry milk with the water. Made you healthy enough for the Army so my guess we could all do that.

And I'm sure the products made these days are a lot better than they once were. Now, I would probably take dry milk over the long shelf life type I saw while in Afghanistan.

That long shelf type is very popular in the Middle East. I often wondered the long term effects from using this stuff. I prefer the powdered milk. Can you make cottage cheeze using powdered milk? Something I miss when in the Phillippines. There is lot of powdered milk there but no cottage cheeze.

Same technique here.

Plus for drinking - just add chocolate

I used to have a plastic cocktail mixer style pot - milk came out nice and frothy

Janet, that is a great tip, I'll try it.

Re: Dry Milk: The Secret

So that's the trick Janet!!! Always was amazed how reluctant the powdered milk is to mix with the water.

atoll - Brilliant in regards to the yogurt...I am definitely going to try that one.

Dan, I was raised with my Mom mixing milk up from powder. I was not under the impression she did it for the budget as much as for the convenience.

Re: Dry Milk: The Secret

I have been trying to behave. Which is why Im reading about powdered milk on a saturday night. I just have to wonder is there a correlation between Davids new breasts and powdered milk? Im giving up milk for sea water.
