A Pleasant Accident by Nature


In the last few days, I have been experimenting aka hopefully learning...
how to make good eats with clabbering raw milk

well, I can't say what exactly happened here...
but, after 3 days of clabbering a half gallon jar of raw milk...
I got what seems to be cheese along with the soft curds of natural sour cream


I understand that cheese can be preserved in olive oil, so I went ahead and did just that...
and this is what you are seeing in the photo above
preserved this way, the cheese does not need to be refrigerated
although I must admit it does look kind of funky


and this is what my clabbering milk turning into whey, sour cream and cheese looked like...
while I let it sit for a few days to do it's own delicious thing
the cheese floated to the top; the whey in the middle; the sour cream on the bottom



the sour cream is straining into the glass cup to thicken it...
the liquid whey is in a jar to be used for various other things (dogs, chickens, cooking)...
and the cheese is rather a very interesting surprise to me



it came out with a pleasant, mildly tart, cheesy taste...
and a texture between farm cheese and mozarella cheese

rennet is not readily available here on this island...
and if the warm tropical climate is enough to help out with the culturing of cheese...
from my raw milk simply from standing a few days...
I'll take it



as for the sour cream; it really tastes a lot like creamy yogurt and super good with raw honey
awfully nice as a topping on homemade granola



so, the verdict on all this pleasant accident by nature...?


I'm grateful for the freedom to have a cow and raw milk

May your day or night find merciful blessings in the Lord's grace.

  1. Wow! That is really cool! I especially love the last picture, of the dog sleeping on the giant cream cheese pillow!

  2. Interesting I have yet to try raw milk. My daughter is interested in goats for 4H this year so we shall see it might be in my future! ~thanks for sharing ~Heather
