what percent will result from combining two types of milk?

If I add 1/100 to 2/100, I get 3/100 or 3%. But if I add one hundred apples, one of which is red, to one hundred apples, two of which are red, I will have 3/200 or 1.5%. I'm very confused now as to what percent milk fat my milk will be if I combine the two types of milk (1% and 2%) together.

Delicious boiled milk

I was making yogurt, but forgot that I was doing it. Instead of heating the milk to 180, I heated it to boiling. And then...left it there for a while. I have almost a gallon of freshly boiled milk, and can't stand to throw it away. What on earth can I do with it? [more inside]

What are the general principles for cooking with coconut milk?

As the years go by I find myself craving coconut milk more and more, but I'm not quite sure how to incorporate it into my diet. I'm pretty bad at following recipes, so usually I just use my past experience with ingredients to guide me in how to use them. I don't have much experience with coconut milk, however, so I'm hoping that folks on AskMe can give me some general principles to guild me instead. [more inside]

Can I eat it? Snowpocalypse 2.0 edition

So...Ralph forgot I had already made a milk and bread run and bought another gallon-but didn't check the date (it was the last gallon at that convenience store. ) So, I opened it for milk for my coffee and right after I poured it noticed the date. Feb 4th. This is the 10th. And then I noticed the slight curding once it met my coffee and generic sweet and low. It didn't smell or taste sour, but it did leave a few curds at the bottom of the cup (yes, I drank it.) So, my question is this: Since obviously this is not fresh milk, and since I DO have other milk in the house-what milkusing recipes can I use this for? [more inside]

Can I eat it: stanky milk custard edition.

My sweet boyfriend just cooked me some delicious Bird's custard. I learned (after it was cooked) that the milk he used was the old one - the date on the container is 7/29. I sniffed it and it smells stinky to me. It is not lumpy. When you make the custard you do bring it up to a low boil, not sure if that will be a factor. Should I eat it? Would you eat it?

Foolproof way to feed baby kittens?

I've got three new baby kittens with no mother, and I need to feed them. I don't have access to any good pet stores or veterinary clinics, but I do have lactose-free baby formula and a plastic syringe with the needle removed, which I've been using to feed them so far. But is there a foolproof method of holding them or something to get them to drink from it? I can usually get them to drink, but only about half of the amount recommended. More details inside.

Help me Froth my Almond Milk!

In an effort to healthify, I've replaced milk in my coffee with almond milk (unsweetened vanilla). It is awesome and yummy. I've taken to using my aerolatte to whip it into a tasty froth before adding my coffee. Add a little cinnamon on top and magic happens. So this worked great until my last purchase of almond milk (pure almond from Silk). It Will Not Froth! MY QUESTIONS: 1. Why won't it froth? 2. Could the absence of Carrageenan be the cause? 3. Should I worry about the presence of Carrageenan in my nut milk?

the cutest little thermos ever

I take a nice 4-serving Thermos of tea to work every day. It keeps my tea nice and hot all day long. But my little tupperware of milk warms up after a couple of hours. I'd like to find a 4-ounce container that will keep my milk cool, can poor without dripping, and is OK to put dairy in (because according to my Thermos, it's dairy intolerant).

Like a caramel apple in a can.

The first night I was in Japan on vacation, I got a drink out of a vending machine that was a combination of apple juice and condensed milk. It was surprisingly good, and while I looked for another can throughout our stay in Japan, I never saw that combination again. What did I drink, and how can I get some in America?

Recommended hot chocolate for hot water?

I'm looking for recommendations for hot chocolate mixes which don't require you to add them to milk (it's probably best if they already contain the milk, but that's not required as long as it doesn't taste thin and watery when you put it in hot water). I'm not lactose intolerant, but I don't usually have milk around, plus it's much easier & more convenient to heat up water. [more inside]

My stomach don't work right and I don't know why.

I've tried soy milk and I've tried almond milk. I've tried various brands of each. I've tried chocolate (which was slightly less painful than the rest), vanilla, and unsweetened. But it seems like no matter what I do, I still get the same kind of stomach cramps and bloating that I get from normal milk. What's the deal? I tried the Lactaid pills and whatnot to try and help with dairy and they did absolutely nothing. And what's more, I rarely have a problem with anything besides milk. Ice cream, yes. But I'm good with cheeses, yogurt, pizza, etc.

now the $6/gallon organic milk isn't good enough either.

Gross food safety/parenting issue of the day: I am freaking out about extra estrogen getting into my daughters' diet via cow's milk, as detailed in this article. My family has a propensity towards early puberty anyway and I really don't want to put my daughters at even more risk for this. My toddler drinks a LOT of milk -- she's a fussy eater and it's the only thing she always wants. I buy organic milk, but as far as I know the organic regs do not address the issue of whether the cows are kept pregnant. Do you know of any sources in the SF bay area for milk that isn't from pregnant cows? [more inside]

Table top coffee milk steamer for cappuccino

Hey Guys, I have a mypressi, which is a portable C02 powered espresso machine. It seems to work pretty good, but the included milk frother does not produce a true milk froth which you would expect to get when you order a cappuccino. I found the linked video on youtube and became intriqued with the steamer/water heater setup he was using. Does anyone know who manufactures that steamer? I have found a stove top model online while searching, but not the electric one used in the video. Any help would be awesome. Thanks guys and gals! Youtube Video Link ~Craig

Do milk, honey, and other similar animal products contain significant amounts of DNA?

Okay - I admit I didn't pay as much attention in biology class as I should have. Can someone tell me whether or not animal products such as milk and honey contain significant amounts of DNA? I have a friend who thinks people who talk about eating food that's "free of chemicals" are hysterical, because of course all food is made up of chemicals. But she takes it a step farther and asks if they've tried DNA-free food as well, which brings me to my point. I suggested things like milk and honey, which are secreted by animals, might by considered DNA-free. Her reaction was shock and dismay that I was ignorant of the (to her) common knowledge that those things do, in fact, contain DNA. I mean, I'll buy that maybe they contain some stray particles of DNA - like (I believe) our saliva does, but are they, or are they not, made of DNA?

How can I better store half & half?

I like my coffee--enough that I just drink one good cup a day. (I make it with an Aeropress.) Since it's just one cup, I don't feel shy about adding half & half. Ultra-pasteurized h&h has a sell-by date that can be a month out or more. I thought I'd be smart and make it easier to store and pour by putting it in a glass container. It's this GlassLock container. After four or five days, the h&h starts to separate. What should last for weeks more goes bad almost right away. This has happened with several brands of h&h, and I've certainly washed the container well. Does anyone have a guess on why this is happening? Any suggestions on a container (you've tried yourself) that does work well for storing half & half?

How much does milk cost anyway?

Why has the cost of milk gone up so rapidly, proportionally speaking? Five weeks ago, I could find milk for $2 a gallon; yesterday, the cheapest I found was $2.49 a gallon at Costco, and that was only if you bought two gallons at once. Everywhere else it's been higher - I even saw a store selling whole milk at $3.99 a gallon! This is just milk. Nothing premium or otherwise meant to raise the price point about it. Other dairy products have gone up in cost, too, but not so drastically (that I've noticed). [more inside]

Chocolate Milk without added sugar

Late last year on a visit to Montreal, I purchased some chocolate milk that did not have any added sugar or sweeteners. It was awesome. Since coming back to the US (bay area) I have not found a chocolate milk that is free of the added sweeteners. I have tried whole foods, Berkeley bowl, trader joes and safeway. Any idea what brand I got in Montreal and where I can find something similar here?
