Thank you for any recipes or suggestions. It's full fat unpasteurized and only good for 5 days. And my 4 kids have just gone away for 2 weeks. Any ideas that I can freeze?

You can freeze milk.

Cheese? If you are quick you may be able to get some rennet delivered tomorrow. There are various recipes online.

You can make a country cheese/ queso fresco / paneer type cheese by just adding acid to milk here

Or yes, just freeze the milk! But it will expand so you'd need to leave space in each container.

Also Lakeland used to do rennet, not sure if they still do, if you're near one.

I'm pretty sure you can freeze 'raw' milk for more than 5 days confused

oh sorry - I read your OP as "I can only freeze it for 5 days"

just bung it in the freezer - job done!

Ooh, or make gelato.

Make some yogurt, or soft cheese. You could also try skimming it, and make butter from the cream.

As a child, we used to be encouraged to find recipes utilising the maximum amount of milk, cream and eggs as we had goats and chickens, so at this time of year we had a massive excess

Geniuses all. I seem to remember my step mums frozen milk was a bit weird.
