Reconstituting Home Dehydrated Milk

I purposefully did these batches in 1 cup increments so I could measure how much dried milk to use to make a cup again.
It measure out to a tiny bit over 13 teaspoons, then add HOT water to make one cup.



  
Stirred it up with a whisk Then STRAIN the MILK to get the extra fat particles.  

Taste test. Well, I tell you I tasted it while still warm and it tasted good. We would use this cold on cereal or to drink.
All in all, I will do this again. 








The last step was to vacuum seal it with my Food Saver and add to my food storage. 



Thank you for dropping by & please feel free to like Perky Prepping Gramma on Facebook  share & pin. I actually do what I post & share my actual journey of preparation.

I also have an online Amazon Associate/store called Perky Prepping Gramma's Store. This allows me to show you the products I have personally used and endorse, while monetizing my work. What I found early on was people would ask me where I got such & such an item and I would simply share a link.  Perky Prepping Gramma's Store So, I created a store of these items I use frequently or recommend. It doesn't cost you anything extra, but I do receive a small percentage as an advertising bonus, if you purchase from my store. You are even able to just link in and do any of your regular Amazon shopping. Thank you for your consideration.

  2. Can u do this with raw whole milk and breast milk for infant formula? I absolutely hate the ingredients in infant formula but want something I know is pure and good for my baby.

  4. I am sure about the raw milk, not about the breast milk. I suggest doing a test run with a small amount (1/2 a cup or a cup) of breast milk, then rehydrate it to test it out. I would LOVE to hear the results. There is a slight difference, so you will need to determine if it is acceptable. :D ~Perky~

    1. Hi Mary,
      I imagine you could. I find the reconstituted turns out a little less fatty. ~Perky~

  6. Why do you strain the reconstituted milk to get the fat paarticles? Do you do something with them and then add ? Just wondering because in my prepping right now, I am either canning or dehydrating. Trying to keep my freezer foods to a minimum. Thank you for you information sharing :-)
