I am a bit different that many, and I believe full cream milk is far better for you than skim or low fat milk. Mind you theres carbs in milk so I stick with cream!
Anyway, each to their own diet...
Now to answer your question...
World wide there are several brands of UHT milk. These are in cartons and can be stored without refrigeration
. Then cool it before use.
There are also two types of UHT, one that can be stored, and the other that can only be stored in a refrigerator
, but it will last more than a month. Thats usually cream. Its hard to buy cream in UHT that stores in a cupboard.
So read the labels carefully.
The UHT full cream milk can range in taste from pretty bloody horrible to fantastic so before you buy 6 cartons, or 6 cases, just buy one carton and see if you like the taste. If theres a selection buy a carton of each and see which one os best. Do a "blind" taste test with hubby and vote
Normally the most expensive tastes best to me, but thats not always the case, theres one English
brand thats often cheapest thats very good.
When you hit a good provisioning
stop before a passage
you really need to work out how far it will be before the next good one. So, for example, if you were heading for a pacific crossing from the caribbean
then you need to stock up three months supply of milk before you leave St Martin
may not have a good tasting brand, and the pacific has bugger all of anything till you get to New Zealand
, remember many people are lactose intolerant so milk can be difficult to find.
Some folks may not think milk is important, but it is!
