Our goats are giving us about 2 gallons of milk a day right now. One in the morning, of course, and one in the evening. That is a LOT of milk for two people! I trade some for eggs and some for produce, but still....
Here you can see 2 gallons of milk warming up to 40 degrees C. on the stove:
We recently purchased a cream separator. It was made in Russia and so we had to buy an electric converter box. This was our very first time separating cream from our goat milk. The machine worked easily and from the the two gallons, we ended up with about a pint of Very Heavy Cream.
After it was chilled in the refrigerator, you can see how thick it is:
I need to separate some more and then I'll have a whole quart and I think I'll make butter. I did add a little to our mashed potatoes for supper tonight and that was very nice. When I do make the butter, I will report back here.
