The Milk Pail Diaries
Tables, Tasting and Trials
Thanks to everyone's advice and tips, I have started to enjoy the milk here as a substitute for all the things I used cow's milk for. In my cereal, by the glass, in my coffee. Either Bonita is special or that chilling/freezing method really works because her milk tastes no different in flavor or texture than 2% Cows Milk. No "goaty" taste at all. It's not as fatty as the whole milk in my fridge, but way more "wholesome" than a skim or fat-reduced milk. I'm really happy about that. Most goat milk I have tried has either been off local food source shelves from neighboring farms, and way too "goaty" for my taste. But I can not tell the difference between this chilled, fresh, Alpine milk and the stuff I've been drinking my whole life.
I brought a glass-bottle pint with vanilla extract and sugar into the office today, for coffee. Everyone at work treating it like the black stain of the Company Fridge. We need some goat milk education around these parts...
