I have a question about evaporated milk that I wanted to use in my pumpkin pie recipe. I opened the can and poured the milk into the measuring cup and noticed the separation at the bottom of the tin. Is this a normal event when milk is sitting in the cupboard for a long period of time. I took another tin out and it was fine so I used it instead.

Did you shake the can before you opened it? I always shake it well.

No, I didn't shake the can. Thank you for the tip. I have not been using the milk for quite awhile so that is a good thing to do when it has sat for a long period of time. The other can was fine though and I did not shake it so maybe the one can was more apt to separate.
