FRIDAY FARM REPORT 8/10/18

Canning Season has begun!

 this wagon is 3 days worth of goodies. This is about what we get every 3 days or so

After selling some at the farmer's market, I cut up the rest to be made into juice,  3 big pans  

 

 I use my Kitchenaide to make the juice, It spits out all the seeds and skins on the end and the juice goes into the container. The chicken favorite is the "tomato poop" They got 3 ice cream buckets full from this batch

I ended up with 5 1/2 gallons of juice,  

14 pints of BBQ sauce and 9 pints of pizza sauce. 

CLABBERED MILK

On one of my goat groups on facebook, I kept seeing people talking about clabbered milk. I read up on it and decided to try it. 

What is it?
Naturally sour/fermented milk that may be eaten raw or used in recipes. If left to ferment in the right conditions, clabber milk will separate into curds and whey. Also known as wild fermentation, it uses the wild bacteria and yeast present in the environment. The clabbering process ONLY works with unpasteurized milk. 
The beneficial bacteria in the milk converts the lactose into lactose acid (tart or sour), hence causing a slight curding which thickens the milk and cream. 
Benefits
Clabber milk is packed with essential vitamins such as B2, B12, and minerals. The probiotic bacteria will multiply during the fermentation process which will increase the number of enzymes and the vitamins B, C, D and K. Clabber milk improves digestion, improves eyesight, maintains the health of bones, corrects fatigue, and improves your immune system.

 Day 2

Day 3. I drained it on day 4. I forgot to take a picture of it when it was drained. It looked like small curd cottage cheese. I put some in the food processor and added Hidden Valley ranch mix. It made a wonderful veggie dip. I had an abundance of extra milk and clabbered it for the chickens too. They love it and the whey also. It is good for them too.

I also made ice cream this week. Butter pecan, cherry cordial and strawbeery frozen yogurt.

All the babies have been sold, except for Kylie who we are keeping. They are going to be going to their new homes this week. I even had some ask if I had more babies for sale. I wasn't going to breed this year but have decided I might breed a couple. We will miss the babies but knowing they are going to good homes make it easier.

How was your week?
