Can I freeze raw milk?

keepitlow(6)February 24, 2010

When I visit my mom in PA I pick up some raw milk. I have no stores that sell it in my local, they said it was illegal. But I can't seem to use the milk all up before they expire.

The raw milk is super expansive, and can't afford to waste it. I think the last ones I bought were $5 a half gallon. I was wondering if they can be frozen in their plastic bottles for later use as needed? Or, do you think the freezing messes up any of the benefit of drinking raw milk?

Thanks

Won't address any of the "benefits" of drinking raw milk as it is a very controversial topic and would only stir things up. ;) But yes you can freeze it for a short period. It separates in the process just like all milk but can easily be remixed once thawed.

Yes - you can. We go to a farm every 2 weeks to get milk, and since it is a long drive - the farmer mentioned he has customers that go less often, and freeze it. I have never done it - but it is possible. Just make sure to remove some milk from the bottles before freezing to allow room for expansion.
