I enjoy collecting recipes and baking. I’ve been collecting recipes my mom and grandmas used – the following recipes are all from their collection of recipes.

I thought I’d share a few recipes with you today on what to do with sour milk – don’t throw it away – try making these:

6 T melted shortening or butter

1 tsp baking pwd

2 eggs, separated

1/2 tsp soda
