Hurrah For Real Milk!

We do not drink milk. But we do cook and bake with it. And like all our dietary choices, we look for whole, real, nourishing foods.
In Nova Scotia, it is illegal to sell raw milk. Most milk is both homogenized and pasteurized. But to our great joy, one dairy in our province has started selling delicious, rich and creamy milk that is not homogenized. It comes in lovely glass bottles that we can return when we purchase more. I love the look of the thick cream at the top, and feel good about adding it to our baked goods and sauces.
As Naomi gets older, we plan on introducing homemade yogurt, homemade puddings, homemade ice cream, and maybe even homemade cheese into her diet. I would love to try my hand at butter making but in truth, I hate to waste all that milk, as we don’t use a lot of buttermilk.
If you are interested in finding “real” milk, there are some great resources, including RealMilk.com. Give it a try!
