How long to keep soured milk?

I know that soured raw milk from healthy cows and goats is a goldmine, but I haven't moved forward with making anything out of it. I have two pickle jars full sitting in the back of my fridge for months now...at what point should I throw it out? Thanks, Sarah!

That's a really good question, and I'd like to add to it. A few weeks ago, my raw milk started souring, and I managed to drink a good cup of it, but it absolutely killed my stomach. That kinda surprised me.

Is that normal? I think I drank it on an empty stomach, so is that where I went wrong?

I know I don't like drinking sour milk. But I do like the challenge of finding ways to use it. I like making ice cream out of my cream... even if it sours. I try to think of flavors that go well with a bit of sour like cheesecake is a sour flavor... so I tried making a strawberry puree and adding it at the end of the ice cream process. Strawberry cheesecake ice cream? Yes!!!

Hi Becky, if it hasn't gotten too chunky and there's no mold, you can still use it. Might want to use for quiche as it will be very sour

Here's a post I wrote on 101 things to do with soured raw milk:
