Raw Milk

While there is something satisfying about the more yellow version during the summer, the freshness of raw milk seems even more appreciated this time of year when local fruits and vegetables are harder to find.

  1. Help? I googled Raw Jersey Milk and walked away with a still uncertain conclusion. Anyone out there who can tell me the pros and cons? Also, does this raw milk have clotted cream on top? Thanks!

    1. Raw just means unpasteurized. Cons are that it might have listeria or salmonella. Pros are that some people claims it tastes better. If you want the cream on top of your milk, just buy nonhomogenized milk (raw or pasteurized). It is also sold as "cream line" milk.

    2. Thanks for taking the time to reply. Much appreciated. Cream Line is what I am looking for, and I am sure it is right in front of me at the market. I am simply in the habit of grabbing a gallon for the kids on the go. Somehow going to have to fit Cream Line in to my New Year resolutions. Happy holiday season to you and all the best for the New Year.

  2. I don't take the raw Jersey milk but in the UK we have 'gold top' which is pasteurised Jersey milk. The gold top name comes from the layer of cream on the top. It makes the best porridge and hot chocolate for Winter days/nights.

  3. I didn't know raw milk could be sold openly in some states, but your post set me Googling and I now know I can find it. A mug of that hot chocolate sounds lovely, Mad Dog.
