|We had to start labeling all the glass jars containing various white-colored dairy sundries.|
In addition to the raw milk butter, buttermilk, yogurt, chocolate milk, and cream cheese and whey, Wife and I also started clabbering some milk last week Clabber is just curdled, slightly solidified raw milk. We set a jar on the counter, stirred it twice a day, and let it be. After several days, it started separating into the slightly solid clabbered curds (similar to the cream cheese, but less "finished") and the beige-tinted liquid whey.
We drained some off to feed the chickens and the pigs (clabber to the chickens, whey to the pigs), then topped off the jar with fresh milk.
The chickens LOVED it.
They went crazy over the plate we added to their pen. It was likely about a pint of clabber, maybe a touch more. They all devoured it.
|Chickens tasting clabber for the first time.|
The Rhode Island Red got clabber all over her face.
And speaking of Ms. Da'Cow, she is truly an amazing creature. In addition to all the dairy, she's taken it upon herself to mow my front lawn.

Well, in reality, I staked her out there. It was Wife's idea, since the grass out front was a lush, rich dark green. St. Brigid would've been proud.
