Powdered Milk and Aunt Kate's Update

A couple of you have been wondering about how to get the Aunt Kate's dough mix. If you are interested in ordering a whole case for your food storage, or if you want the individual bags, you can order them from us. Just leave a comment with your contact information, or email me at and put Aunt Kate's as the subject line, (that way I know it isn't spam). I will send you a more detailed email about the cost of the mix and all of that fun stuff.

Okay, on to powdered milk. I have heard a lot of good things about using powdered milk. In fact, we have friends who drink powdered milk on a daily basis which saves them a bundle of money! So, I found a little something that may be helpful to some of you. I actually got it from a blog called Sunshine and Happiness. I thought that it had a lot of great tips.

Foods made with powdered milk will have fewer calories and less cholesterol than those made from whole milk.

Adding additional milk to the recipe will enhance the nutritive value of the recipe.

In any recipe calling for milk, simply add water for the milk called for in the recipe.

Recipes call for many types of milk. All the following can be made from powdered milk.

Whole milk

1 cup water

1/3 cup powdered milk

Evaporated milk

1 cup water

2/3 cup powdered milk

Whipped evaporated milk

Makes 3 cups

1 cup evaporated milk

2 Tbsp lemon juice

Thoroughly chill evaporated milk.

Add lemon juice and whip until stiff.

Sweeten and flavor as desired.

Condensed milk

1/2 cup hot water

1 cup powdered milk

Can be stored in refrigerator or frozen.

Buttermilk or sour milk

To improve the flavor of powdered milk, mix it half and half with 2% or whole milk. Another suggestion would be to try adding a little sugar or vanilla to enhance flavor. Let chill several hours before drinking.
