I feel like this is a dumb question, but here goes...

I recently started drinking raw milk (so yummy!!), and I would really like to start using the cream in my coffee (I'm currently just using regular pasturized half & half). But I can't figure out how to get the cream off the top! The opening in the top of the container is too narrow for me to use a spoon, and of course when I pour it the cream floats to the back/starts to mix back into the milk. Help!

I think what they used to do (based on all the historical fiction I have read
) is pour the milk into wide shallow pans (you could use a baking dish) and then put it somewhere cool (used to be the dairy, you could use the fridge) and wait for the cream to rise, then skim it off.

I keep my raw milk in wide mouth mason jars so I use a spoon but a friend of mine uses a turkey baster. The cream is deep on the sides of the jar and shallow in the middle. After you practice you'll be able to tell whether you're scooping cream or milk.
