Milk, gallons of it

I have been clearing up the perishables from my DM's fridge as she has had to go in to hospital (thankfully getting better now).

I am left with 8 pints of semi-skimmed milk to use up urgently - any ideas?

We usually only get through 2 pints a week for DH's cornflakes so no idea what DM does with it all! She does drink a lot of tea grin

Massive batch of pancakes which you can then freeze for snacks, breakfasts and packed lunches.

No room in freezer for 2 giant milk cartons - my freezer is tiny sad

I am also supposed to be dieting much as I love the rice pudding idea.

However I have just remembered I got a cheese-making kit for Christmas about 2 years ago, used it once and it has been cluttering up the place ever since. I can make bank holiday cheese!

Pancakes good.

Please keep ideas coming!

Yoghurt - tell me more about yoghurt. We are big yoghurt eaters in this house.

Crème caramel? Angel delight? Cheese sauce? Custard? Old fashioned hot chocolate at bed time?

You can make jelly with milk, including the sugar free kind.

Really easy. 1) Heat up the milk to near boiling and hold it there without burning it. 2) Then cool it down again to about 30C and mix in a small pot of live natural yoghurt. 3) Keep it warm for a few hours until it has time to set. Making yoghurt is not difficult at all, it's just a bit of a faff.
