POWDERED MILK: It has a longer shelf life than fresh milk, and it’s fat-free and high in calcium. You can use it in cooking and baking. Look for the book “Cookin’ With Powdered Milk” by Peggy Layton (Peggy Layton, 1994), or visit www.fns.usda.gov/fdd/recipes/hhp/NFDM-Recipes.pdf for recipes.

Here’s a non-food related recipe:

Bath Bags

1/2 cup oatmeal (regular or quick)
1/2 cup powdered milk
4 Tablespoons ground almonds
16 drops strawberry essential oil

Combine dry ingredients in bowl, stirring to mix well. Add essential oil and blend. Divide mixture among 3 muslin or organza bags, and tie them at the top. Hang one from the bathtub faucet as the water is running into the tub or place directly into bath water. Store the other two in an airtight jar or a baggie.
