Quick Answers



Can milk be frozen?

Homogenized milk can be frozen up to six months, but there are some drawbacks. The water in the milk has a tendency to rise to the top of the container and form ice. It is difficult to get this to mix thoroughly with the milk when thawed. Sometimes this affects the flavor and appearance. It is safe to eat and can be used in cooking or baking.
