I drink a lot of milk and that is a problem when boondocking sometimes.
About 3 months ago I bought a case of ultra high temp pasturized milk that needs no refrigeration at Costco. When I cleaned out the Scamp a couple af weeks ago I put 4 quarts in the refer in the garage. I was out of milk at dinner today and tried one of these that I had put in the refer.
It was very good. For those of you that have kids or are just milk drinkers this may be the answer to taking enough milk on your trips.
As I remember it was about $8.00 for 12 qts and the label reads Premium Milk by Gossner foods.

Hi,
I use the milk that comes in the little boxes. Comes in very handy. I also buy soup (health food section) in the box...some of which is amazingly tasty for pre-made.

Thanks John. I don't typically drink milk, but I do like it in my morning coffee....and I much prefer milk over chemical liquid stuff or those icky powder whiteners (personal opinion!). So, this might just be the ticket for me!

My kids were working on Dairy Farms in Virginia back in the mid to late 80's when we first heard about this product, as memory serves (and sometimes it doesn't) it was discovered by the Dutch about that same time.

I lead a sheltered life. I'd not heard of UHT milk! I thought I'd do a little research on it.

Hear is an interesting abstract read on the nutritional value of UHT milk from the National Library of Medicine and the National Institute of Health: NHL/NIH Abstract

Here's a short article on the safety of UHT milk from a food distribution perspective: UHT milk safety

Whoa! And this stuff appears to be pretty benign until you read this article... I'm not sure I want to drink it at all! UHT Milk studies

When I worked in Saudi Arabia in the 70s and 80s, UHT was about all that was available in the way of milk. We managed quite well with it. You get used to it and it certainly is convenient.

Yes it does Donna.

Even though there are some denigrating reports I will still use it when I camp. I haven't heard of anyone getting sick from UHT Milk.

We often bring some along when we go kayaking. I try and buy the small containers so that we use them up right away as they do need to be kept cold once opened. I can assure you that on day six of camping in the wilds the thought that it has a lesser nutritional value never crosses my mind while enjoying it with my morning coffee and cereal. It seems decatent when you consider the alternatives! LOL It tastes even better if you put the container in the cold ocean for a little while to cool it off before opening......

I've heard in Europe they sell irradiated milk, meat, on the shelf?
