1 gallon Unpasteurized Milk

Bliss149 Mar 30, 2013 09:44 AM

I impulsively bought a gallon of unpateurized milk. (You know...for pets!)

Now my "pet" who is the milk drinker in our house says he's not going to drink it because it will cause diphtheria or some such.

What can I do with it?

    I'm not a milk drinker myself but raw milk is incredibly delicious. I have used it to make excellent Philadelphia style ice cream, as well.

      I'm not familiar with Philladelphia ice cream. Will have to look that up.

      Would kind of like to do something a little healthier but all ideas appreciated. I might end up doing that if it doesn't take an ice cream maker.

        You'll definitely need an ice cream maker to get a decent texture with Philadelphia style ice cream, which uses an uncooked, egg free dairy mixture as a base. The problem with raw milk "recipes" is that most recipes require some cooking, which totally defeats the purpose of having purchased unpasteurized milk in the first place.

        If you like mayonnaise, you might try this recipe: http://leitesculinaria.com/32983/writ...

        If you drink iced coffee, you can use up quite a bit that way as well.

        I drank one glass of it but just not a big milk drinker. It does have a good clean taste though.

        Don't know where you're located but this place delivers all over Tennessee and into Georgia and Mississippi. West Wind Farms.

          I'm in NJ. It's illegal to sell raw milk in Jersey.

            It's is here too...for human consumption. This milk is "for pets."

              That's interesting.
              It's not illegal in the UK but is regulated.
              Selfridges were prosecuted by the FSA (UK equivilient of theFDA) for selling unpasteurized milk from a vending machine.

        Cheese or yogurt.

          With unpasteurized milk I think cheese or yogurt would be the way to go.
          If not I think a rice pudding would be good.

            Thanks everyone. Off to find cheese recipes!

          Homemade cheese! Mix with either lemon juice/zest or some nice red wine vinegar... there are lots of recipes out in google-land. I find I get a much higher percentage of curds when I use unpasteurized milk.
