Moms on WIC

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

How do you use the evaporeted milk that you get every month?

Do you use it to cook? Do you add water and make use it as regular milk?


I have cans of this stuff backed up. 

Every now and then Dh will use it in his coffee. I will use it to cook with if we are running low on regulat milk. 

Today I mixed a few cans with water in a milk jug. Then I tried it. It didn't taste TOO bad. It tasted like Skim milk but with a funky little after taste. I used chocolate and made some chocolate milke for DS with it. He didn't seem to mind. 

Anyways so I was just wondering how you other WIC moms use this stuff?

Edit: For those who are saying you do not get it, do you CHOOSE not to get it or is it not offered to you?

I'm not on WIC but I know a few people who are and they don't get evaporated milk, they get regular milk.

I think it's mostly used for baking things like pies and things like that.  Try googling recipes with it.

I don't get evaporated milk either but I do get WAY too much PB.  I think I have almost a full jar open and 3 jars unopened in the cupboard.  I gave DS' father 1 unopened jar last month for DS to have at his house because I had 5 jars at that time.

I never got that when I was on Wic. But I use it now to make chocolate Caramel mochas. :)

I work for WIC in Arkansas. Ask them to.change your food package to regular milk. Generally evaporated milk is given to Moms with no refrigerators.

I dont get evaporated milk. Its milk, eggs, cheese, peanut butter, bread, and veges. I think its formula to age one, then whole milk, and 2% at age two. I live in michigan.

So do you get regular milk and condensed milk? Here you get a choice of one or the other.
