There is a recipe that I have from my great great grandmother. One of her recipe's call for Sweet milk. They were farmers and this meant the unpasturize milk. Everything is pasturize now but I really want to try out this recipe. Any Suggestions
Not everything is pasteurized. If you do a search for local farms you may be able to find some. I know it's illegal in some states but in others you can find it fairly easily.
Contact a local dairy farmer and see about buying some fresh milk.
I grew up in the country and sweet milk always meant, not buttermilk or sour milk. Regular full fat milk should be fine.
I was also thinking that Leah.
Thank you... I am not sure where the local farms are located in Atlanta however I will give it a shot. The recipes I have tried so far are fantastic and I now need to make this one.
Thank you. That helps me out big time. I will try out this recipe over the weekend. I have no idea how to put this together. My grandmothers were a pinch of this or that, types. I am like that too, however when it comes to cake I want to get it right.
Amen to what's been said. Isn't if funny how words and meaning change over the years.
I know several of my grandmother's recipes have 'sweet milk' in them...and I also know it means regular milk because I asked her once about it a LONG time ago. You might also think Half n Half, because milk straight from the cows still has the cream in it.
I grew up having blue and white milk on my cereal. Our cows were fed alfalfa hay which turned it blue and the cream gave it white swirls. I've been slowly making my way through some old recipes I found and one of them calls for "drippings". What's sad is that I know what that is.
We have an organic farm in our area that sells milk that goes through low temp pasteurization. These products are what I use. They are thicker and creamier than grocery store products. I actually have to shake the bottle to get the heavy cream out. Google your area and see if you can find products that are closer to the originals.
You can also research farms that participate in CSA programs. There's several in my area that provide organic milk.
Sweet milk is just whole milk. But if you want it raw, then you have to get it from a farm.
