Guess what this is?
Fresh from the cow.......whole milk!
We spent Saturday night with my husband's stepbrother and his new wife. She has a very interesting mother and dad. They live on many acres, off the beaten path, with no electricity or running water. They raise cows, chickens...have a huge garden and are completely self sufficient. They live this lifestyle by choice and are very happy. They raise and sell a rare tea that has strong cancer fighting properties. They have a waiting list of customers wanting the tea. (I wish I had written down the name of it but.....)
This brings me to the milk part of the story. I don't recall ever having fresh whole milk. Brother in law skimmed off the cream, which was 3 or 4 inches deep and asked me if I'd like a taste of the remaining milk. Of course I had to taste, which led to a big glass. It was so delicious. It had a rich taste almost like a malt flavor and I loved it. I could drink that milk everyday. He said they feed the cows the correct foods (don't know what those are) to make them produce the best milk they can. I'd say they are spot on cause it was yummy.
Of course you can't have fresh milk without:
Yes, you're right....butter. And yes, I put it on my biscuit along with homemade strawberry preserves. What a wonderful flavor.
I can't wait to go back and visit them when fresh vegetables are plentiful. All organic, homegrown locally by family members......Welcome to the family Cathy!
