Raw Milk

cows-raw-milk

I went yesterday to an adorable dairy & bought some raw dairy items. It was pretty reasonably priced; I got a gallon of whole milk, 6 pints of heavy cream, a large block of jalapeno cheddar & 2 bags of fresh curds for $28.

So last night when we got home we had some White Russians with my homemade kahula. Regular kahula is way too sweet, so I make my own. It is super easy, you just make a pot of really strong coffee & put it on the stove until it gets really thick. Add a tiny amount of sugar – maybe 1/4 cup, or molasses, or whatever sweetener you feel comfortable with. Pour a teaspoon of vanilla & then finally add some booze to it. Rum or vodka is good, but I use everclear so it doesn’t get watered down.

The dairy I went to has been in business since the 1920s & is located in an older section of a small town. It is right smack dab in the middle of a not great neighborhood full of ramshackle Victorians, so you have these cows wandering around this piece of land in the middle of a neighborhood. It looked just like the picture above except it was only a couple of acres.
