Creative Cooking – How to Use Milk in a Recipe

Milk is delicious, healthy for the body, wonderful to baked goods and fabulous for some dishes. Even great chefs include milk as one of the secrets of good and tastier food. I came across these simple ways make milk part of every day cooking.

For every 1 cup (250 mL) of milk, simply whisk 1 tbsp (15 mL) all-purpose flour or 2 tsp (10 mL) cornstarch into the milk before adding to the pan and cook, stirring, until the sauce is thickened.

Milk makes your soup creamier while your sauces smoother. Adding milk to your casseroles adds more moist making it tastier. You can even substitute water in your dessert ingredients with milk resulting to a more delicious and nutritious treat.

Left over evaporated milk can be mixed equally with water. For each 1 cup (250 mL) required, measure 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice or vinegar into a glass measuring cup and fill with fresh milk to the 1 cup (250 mL) level; let stand for 5 minutes then stir and use in your recipe.

And since evaporated milk is thicker and creamier than milk, it’s a perfect lower-fat substitute for cream in most recipes. 🙂

Getting those years of all work is more than inspiring to sit and express everything worth reading for all ages. But you'll see me more often write about health, cooking and the environment. Drop me a line if you have anything you'd like to talk. I'd be more than happy to hear from you. Carolyn
