Store it right
Store milk in a sealed container in the fridge. The fridge doors are warmer than the shelves, so keep it there if you can – just be careful it doesn’t leak. If possible, store it away from strong-smelling foods, so it doesn’t pick up the smells. If you regularly struggle to get through your milk before it goes off, consider switching to filtered milk, which stays fresh for twice as long once opened. Use up the last of a pint by stirring into soup for a creamy finish, such as in this classic leek and potato number. If you have a sweet tooth, rustle up this easy chocolate mousse, which uses whole milk.
