Up til now we have been getting/drinking raw goats milk. Goats milk does not separate into milk and cream, so that is what I am used to. Today we got some raw cows milk for the first time, and of course there was about 2 and a half inches of cream on top. The lady who delivered it to me said that she scrapes the cream off the top before drinking it so its not so fattenting. I dont really believe in low fat diets so I dont really care about that, I am just wondering what everyone else does. Do you scrape it off, and if so what do you do with the cream? (I dont have a lot of time to dedicate to making my own dairy products, but can do a little given some very detailed info) Or do you just shake it up so it mixes in and drink it? From the time the cow is milked, how long does it stay good for in the fridge?
Also, the milk is yellow which I have heard is because the cow is grass fed. The goats that produced the milk that I used to get were grass fed as well, and they got some alfalfa pellets too, and the milk was white. Just wondering if anyone has a comment on this!
DD seems to prefer the cows milk. She has never had any other milk except breastmilk and goats milk, so its not because she is just used to cows milk(like me. I could not get used to the taste of goats milk).
Thanks in advance! Any comments on the subject are welcome!!
