    So I had a wonderful realization today.

    A gallon of raw milk costs about $6.50.
    A gallon of milk should yield a quart of cream

    do you know what that means?

    it means I can get grass fed, raw, organic cream for THE SAME PRICE as the grocery store brand! *thud*
    Why would I EVER go back to a name brand after this?

      This turned out great! I put it in a mason jar in the freezer. A dallop in coffee or whatever...Like Bork said "GOD":-)
      Free your mind, and your Grok will follow!

        I'm just going to say I can't wait until I can get my cow so I can get raw milk ALL the time. Here it's an occasional treat since I have to drive over an hour to get it, plus the expense. I just adore the stuff though, and I am all beyond excited to make ICE CREAM using raw cream from my cow and raw honey from my bees. All the yummy cheese and stuff... can't wait!

        My review of the Piteba oil expeller - handcranked expeller to make fresh nut oils, coconut oil, etc. Yeah, I love this thing.

          easy method

          We get our raw milk in plastic gallon jugs. Here's how I get the cream out:
          1. let it separate
          2. get some containers ready to catch the skim milk vs. cream
          3. hold the gallon over one of the containers for skim milk
          4. pierce the bottom of the gallon jug to drain out the skim milk
          5. open the top lid of the gallon jug to let in air/drain faster
          6. plug hole to move jug to above the cream container once the milk has drained out
          7. let cream drain out

          done.
          yum.
          I only do this occasionally because we like the cream in the milk, but raw cream......ahhhhh

            Have been working on a post for my new food blog on making your own raw cream thanks to direction from you guys. The post should be ready some time after the 23rd.

            In the mean time, I've been enjoying Kalona Super Natural grass fed cream. Way tasty!
