Old milk - yogurt question
I have a really dumb question. I have thought about this in the past but never figured out the answer.
I have a gallon of milk that is close to it’s expiration date. I was planning to make yogurt with it. I am wondering about the shelf life. Should I plan on using it the normal few days beyond the milk’s date or does fermenting it extend it’s edibility? Lessen it? I am trying to determine whether to make the full gallon or just a small amount. I hate wasting food - poor planning on my part.
I usually have oatmeal, fruit and yogurt for breakfast. This time I also wanted to make some for my mom and her partner. They are both taking antibiotics - she for a very badly stubbed toe, he for Lyme’s. I don’t want to give them something that might go bad quickly.
