|Evaporated goat milk and powdered goat milk|
Both these products are new to me. Some people swear by goat milk for feeding infants who cannot, for whatever reason, nurse or take cow milk or formula.
Charlie volunteered that he liked goat milk better than cow milk. He was quite enthusiastic about drinking it.
Before I was in college, a group of us (some college students where I eventually attended) went to a home in MS, south of Memphis where we attended college. I was in the kitchen with the woman while the guys were with the guys. I mentioned I was thirsty, thinking I would get a glass of water. OH NO! She poured me a 12 ounce glass of fresh, unpasteurized goat milk. To be polite, I took a sip. ACK! Now, I needed water to wash the taste from my mouth. Then, dinner time came. I was hoping for water or a glass of tea. NOPE, she took my goat milk and put it at my place.
Finally, I just unceremoniously and impolitely gulped it down to be rid of it. I was polite enough to wipe the milk from my face. She seized my glass and refilled it. I protested that some water would be just fine. She assured me that she had plenty of goat milk.
Just now, as I was writing this, I wondered if she were trying to fatten me up. I was 5' 7.5 inches and weighed 110 pounds.
At any rate, I gained no weight and learned a lesson: always ask for water when I am thirsty. Then, the person can offer other things. By the way, when I am thirsty, I do not want cow milk either. I want water.
When I was a child and young adult, thirst was quenched with water, not Coke, Milk, or some silly drink from the store. I love Sobe, but have not bought any in over 6 years.
Okay, back to goat milk. I took this picture at Walmart.
Did you know there was evaporated goat milk or powdered goat milk on the market? Have you ever used it?
