I have to get rid of some of my milk for room in the fridge and jars for tomorrow's milking. We have a couple gallons of stuff that doesn't smell "bad" but is starting to smell ummm... gamey? It smells like the cow! Just not so fresh, y/k? So... I tried making butter but it tastes a little like the gamey milk. Would yogurt work since it's innoculated and all? Cheese, probably not, huh? Dump it, take the loss? It's more than my chickens can eat in a day but I know it doesn't really matter if it sits out for them. Just wondering if there is something else I can do for human consumption with it.

This is a little late: but I would just make clabber out of it for the critters. Or use it for fertilizer. If I have plenty of fresh stuff coming in, I don't mess with the older, more 'ripe' milk. I know how easy it is to forget one or two gallons--someone stuck them on a different shelf, or the date tag came off....it happens! Janene

Chatty Kathy: I've been out of the KFC, milking mass quantities. I cannot seem to find Joann's current diary entries and saw a post asking how she is doing. She has been such an inspiration and help to me. I'd like to know how she is.
