Eeeek… it has been over 2 months since my last blog. Not much has changed since that time… except that it has gotten warmer in the weather department. I’ve been in a state of overwhelm for so long now that it is starting to feel like my normal state of being. It has been a looong time since I truly relaxed all the way through. I practice relaxation every day but can’t quite get through to the core. I know, though, that this too shall pass….
While I am waiting to land in a happier place of normal, I try to sustain myself with happy little discoveries. Today, I chanced upon, through a friend, the realization that there is a raw milk goat dairy in my area, and they sell shares to customers with pick-up through a couple of locally owned stores. She gave me a sample of the raw milk that was 5 days old. It tasted like… dare I say… breast milk?? OK… if that gives you the willies let’s just say it was like sipping sweetly scented flowers. I have never tasted such a lovely, delicate sweetness in all my days. And in goats milk! Apparently the pasteurization of goats milk is what gives it that goat-y taste. All I could think of was the wonderful yogurt, ice cream, and cheeses that could be made with this goat nectar. Raw goats milk does not have a long shelf life… about a week. But you can maximize the freshness by storing in smaller containers and filling the container to the top with the milk so that no air is in the container.
Ok… now here is the cherry on top of the milk… the goat dairy folks are beginning the Blood Type Diet. How cool is that! In fact, they met my friend in a HFS while ingredient shopping for BTD foods. Small world, indeed!
So I trust that those goats are well and healthfully fed. You can taste it in their milk.
