I just wanted to keep you guys updated in my goat milking experiences.
I bought a seperator (used). It took me a few days to get the hang of it but I finally managed to get the cream. I put it in the kitchenaid, flipped the switch, and VOILA twenty minutes later, BUTTER!. I didn't like the color so I grated a carrot and squeezed some juice into it. It worked great and, now I don't feel like I'm eating Crisco
Washing the buttermilk out of it was a bit of a pain but after I chilled it in the fridge it was much easier.
Anyway, thanks for reading!
Crissei (aka; Butter Maven)
I've been wanting to try to make butter now for a while. Mine would not be so completely home-made as yours, though. I would just try to buy cream at the store instead of butter and whip it myself. I don't know what the price comparison is....
