Fresh Milk

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

I have recently discovered the creamy deliciousness that is raw milk. After a lifetime of drinking processed skim milk (with an occasional glass of 2% milk as a treat!), my taste buds rejoiced at their first encounter with milk straight from the cow.


I buy the milk from a nearby market early in the morning at the reasonable price of 57 cents per liter. :) For anyone interested, that works out to be $2.16 per gallon of raw milk straight from the cow. This is one of the many things that I love about Bolivia! Fresh foods are so readily available that they're inexpensive. In fact, processed milk from the grocery store is slightly more expensive than raw milk.


After much Googling and debating, I decided to be safe and boil the milk. Granted, it's no longer raw, but it's still fresh and unprocessed. And still delicious! So I just barely bring it to a boil and then let it cool off and store it in the fridge.


I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to processed milk again. I'm officially a fresh milk convert! :)
