Q. I have a lot of powdered milk which I need to use up. I have successfully made yogurt with it but would like to make other cheeses. Can I use powdered milk to make cheese, even cottage cheese or cream cheese?
A. Yes, you can, as long as it's non-fat powdered milk. Whole milk powder tends to go rancid on the storage shelf. You can add some cream to the milk when you make it up. Do realize, however, that due to the processing, it will never be quite the quality of fresh milk.
