I LOVE goat milk!!
For those of you who read that sentence and immediately thought eeeewwwwww based on personal experience, you must have only had store-bought goat milk. You know, the stuff in a carton that has been pasteurized, homogenized, and has sat around for too long. That stuff doesn't taste like fresh goat milk. It does, however, taste like you licked a goat.
Just to clarify, I like the taste of this:
What I'm talking about is the real deal--from the goat to your fridge to your table. Nothing's better. I can easily drink a gallon of the stuff (though I don't recommend drinking a gallon of anything in one sitting). So you can imagine my excitement when a friend e-mailed and said that she was going to have some extra milk from her goats and would I like some. YES, YES, YES!!!!
We all managed to control ourselves and only drank one glass each this evening (though I had to take a few extra sips from the kids' glasses, just to make sure the amounts were all even, you know). And one of my daughters has a dairy allergy. So I should probably drink her share, too.
I've been having the hankering lately to move back out to the country...milk goats of my own...hmmm...
