Well, it's that time again....time for homemade ice cream on hot summer days!  Now that I'm done bottle feeding the baby goats, we are finally getting all the milk for ourselves - 1 gallon a day!! Yeah Pearl!

I really want to try yogurt sometime this week.  I've talked about doing it for the longest that we have so much fresh milk on hand I think it's definitely time!

I made this delicious ice cream a few days ago and it is LONG gone.  Vanilla with Butterfinger / Hershey bar pieces in it.  Yum!  We got some more cream at the store today to make another batch, so I'll be making that tomorrow.  The vanilla was pretty good, but I think everyone around here agrees that chocolate is always best.

 When I serve up bowls of this yummy goat milk ice cream, I just love to torment my goat-abhorring siblings with phrases like.....

"Mmmm....udderly fresh!"  Or, my most recent and favorite one, "Straight from the teat and good to eat!"

They moan and groan but snarf it down just the same.  :-)

Yummy! We've made some ice cream before but not with goat milk. :) Does it taste different from other ice cream?

No it doesn't! Goat's milk ice cream doesn't have any different flavor than just normal ice cream. It's funny because a lot of people think that goat milk tastes bad or different. But it usually doesn't - most times it tastes just like cow milk!

Unless it has been heat treated or they ate something strange! How on earth did you get your goat milk ice cream to work?! We can't seem to get ours to! And I have to say, I think goat milk tastes BETTER than cow milk!;) But... Maybe I"m prejudiced!
