I'm lucky that I live in an area with certain types of ethnic food stores that carry the best dried whole milk I can imagine. They also have cream in cans and butter in jars that don't need to be refrigerated. I checked this out a long time ago.
I know there are places on the web that carried the powdered stuff. How's it taste? Are you all stocking up on those items?

I've got dried, canned (evaporated) milk and some condensed. Dried ain't too bad, if that's all there is.... of course it's not as nice as whole milk.
I have a few shakers of Molly McButter, but I'd really rather just wait and be surprised than start messing with it now.
Ironically, milk prices are going back down (way down), after we've spent all this money. After tuna, it's the most expensive staple item, per serving, in the stash.
If we have to use the milk, it's going to be black with chocolate.

I'd LOVE to know where to get good powdered milk and cream in a can and butter in a jar!! Can you tell us where and how to obtain it?

To answer you question, tell me in which part of the country you live? Also--is your email address your real one?
-- FM (firstname.lastname@example.org), March 27, 1999.
Pamela -- try looking in Asian markets for canned butter...

I live in Missouri and would also like to know where to find good dried whole milk, cream in a can and butter in a jar.

Sorry about the delayed response on this thread. Ethnic stores catering to immigrants are the best places to look for these types of items. I suppose that's because many immigrants lived without dependable and widespread refrigeration prior to their move to the U.S. and grew up on these products.
If you have trouble locating them, drop me an email privately and I'll try to help.

A good place to get high quality nitrogen packed milk is Maple Island, in Saint Paul Mn. They have been in business for years and years, and have a reputation for quality. The number is 1-800-369-1022
The usual discalimer - I don't work there or have any stake in the company, blah, blah, blah
