Shelf life of evaporated milk?
The shelf life of evaporated milk is one year after the date on the can. If the evaporated milk is opened, the shelf life is only three to four days.
What indication does the clear colony titer from the skim milk agar give to the shelf-life of the meat and milk?
You can substitute a combination of evaporated milk and whole milk for evaporated milk. For every cup whole milk, use 1/4 cup of half and half. You can also use whole milk that is cooked down. Simmer whole milk until it has cooked down to half of what is was in order to substitute it for evaporated milk.
No, coconut milk and evaporated milk have very different consistencies. Evaporated milk is milk that has about 60% of the water removed which is why it is so thick. Coconut milk is a much more watery milk, which has a coconut flavor. A good substitute for evaporated milk would be using dry milk powder and adding only 40% of the water recommended, or else use buttermilk. Hope this helps.
Evaporated milk doesn't have any added sugar - that's condensed milk. Evaporated milk is just milk that's had most of the water removed (ie, evaporated out by heating). So, whilst it will taste sweeter than ordinary milk, it's because it's more 'concentrated', not because it's had any sugar added. When mixed with an equal amount of water, evaporated milk can be substituted for fresh milk in baking or other recipes.
