Raw Milk Roundup!
The Pantry Paratus blog covers homesteading, kitchen “how to,” food science, and even occasional food news. We try to mix it up, but sometimes we begin researching something and realize that the subject is much bigger and too complex for a single article. Raw milk is definitely one of those subjects! In such a case, we like to do multiple part series such as the 3-part series on Cacao, another one on chocolate, Preserving the Summer’s End, Deer Processing, and even Baking Powder and Sulfur (used as a food preservative) became their own multi-part series!
If you missed our other recent blog about The Risk of Raw Milk , I think it would be worth your while to open that in its own tab for a later read. And if you, like myself, want to do some further research on this complex issue, can I suggest a few places to start?
You wouldn’t think it would be that hard; it’s the stuff that comes from a mammal, right? Well, there are a lot of terms on the average milk jug and Tiffany breaks it down for you.
The History of Raw Milk and Pasteurization
Tiffany doesn’t waste time getting to the facts of the thing; sick cows give sick milk. But instead of fixing the problem, they decided to mask it instead—at least, in America. Get the real history here.
What Local Raw Milk Means in the UK
Ariana lives near Suffolk and she finds her raw milk at Wyken Market. I have yet to visit the UK, but I think I have a new stop added to my itinerary if I do ever get there. They offer more than charm–they offer nutritious, local foods that boost the neighborhood economy and encourage community. Here are some more photos–see more when you visit And Here We Are.
Understanding Cowshares & the Legalities of That
Adrienne helps us understand what a cowshare is, and what steps we can take in our state government if this isn’t an option for where we may live.
The Benefits and Drawbacks of Raw Milk
Tiffany is quite honest about both—the benefits and the drawbacks of raw milk. If you are considering making the switch for your family, check out this article on Don’t Waste the Crumbs.
We got more coming your way. I did a double-dog-dare. I took three young children to a 2 hour legislative hearing on raw milk in our state’s capital a few weeks ago. I’m going to tell you all about that next time!
