Real milk!!

I noticed at the grocery store this week a new brand of milk. It comes in glass bottles in quarts and half gallons. It seemed expensive until I realized there's a $2 deposit on the bottle that you get when you return the empties. I bought a quart to try. I had forgotten that real milk tastes sooo good!
I will be getting some more. I'll still buy the cheaper stuff in the plastic jugs for cooking but I'll keep some of the "good stuff" when I want a glass of milk with my cookies or pb&js.

I love real milk. I am not a milk drinker at al, but coking with the low pasteurized and non homgenized stuff is amazing!

Oh man, I haven't seen that in at least 10 years and then I bought it at a gas station in the eastern part of the state. I would love to get some just to show dd what milk used to be like. It really brings back memories for me. My folks were dirt poor but had determined that no matter how broke they were there would always be milk in the house for the kids. We had a landlord who had some cows and when times were really tough they would get milk from them. I remember it being pasturized but not homogenized. It was quite a revelation to this city raised kid to see the cream floating on top. I learned many years later that what we call whole milk today used to be called skimmed milk because most of the cream was skimmed off. I hope I can find some.

We have a local company that sells it that way. When I make Ice cream, I make sure to seek out their cream, it puts the commercial brand to shame, the commercial brand has absolutely no flavor. Funny thing is, this local cream is actually the same price as the commercial stuff.

Oh and their eggnog at Christmas is pure heaven.

Top of the milk, our milk is delivered in pint glass bottles, but for a real treat I use Jersy Milk that I buy in bottles from the supermarket the cream is a light yellow and makes the best custard base for icecream

I'm going to try it warmed up with the next bottle I get. I have fond memories of getting fresh milk from my grandfather. I wasn't allowed to drink it directly from the cow. He had his own pasteurization "plant". It was a little cement block building with 2 machines in it. I would always get a tin mug of milk direct from the machine before he filled the milk cans for the dairy to pick up. It was the best!! Of course he had Guernsey cows which give the highest butterfat milk. We always had wonderful ice cream too!

What is real milk? Some people call whole milk real milk, or do you mean unpasteurized?

Real milk is from what we had 50yrs ago, betty was a house cow, she was certified disease free and never mixed with other cows, the vet would inseminate her we drank the milk raw.
